ANNVILLE, PENNSYLVANIA, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 3, 1940 



No. 6 



j^ eW Chapel 
Omits Secular 

Dean States Purposes 

I order to clarify the general De- 
terment of students, in reference 
the changed order of the chapel 
t0 iod D ean Stonecipher states the 
P urpose thus: to make programs pure- 
|' U devotional in character and litur- 
Lj i n form. Our chapel services 
ill no longer feature speeches or ad- 
dresses by either faculty members or 
other lecturers. 

Only ministerial faculty members 
and the college church pastor will con- 
duct the daily services, each individ- 
ual serving one week at a time. The 
order and content of the services are 
left to the discretion of the person in 
charge, with the condition that he 
preserve the strictly religious nature 
of the church, including no announce- 
ments or the introduction of any secu- 
lar matters. This, however, applies 
to only the first four days of the 
week, allowing Friday's chapel period 
for varied programs. 

The chapel doors will close prompt- 
ly at 8:55 upon the beginning of the 
service. Nobody will be admitted af- 
ter that time, thus avoiding any un- 
necessary confusion. Professors as 
well as students are requested to co- 
operate. Further cooperation from 
the same group will be required to 
preserve a quiet, worshipful attitude 
in approaching chapel. In the near 
future, new pulpit furniture will be 
put into use, adding a great deal to 
the worshipful atmosphere that au- 
thorities are striving to create. 



La Vie Policy And 
Staff Reorganized 

LA VIE began the new school year 
reorganized as to staff and policy. 
Replacing the editor of last year who 
resigned is Jane Ehrhart. She has 
named her staff each of which will 
have a department with which to 
work. These persons are Associate 
Editor — Ralph Shay, News Editor — 
Martha Davies, Features Editor — 
Louella Schindel, Sporls Editor — Alex 
Rakow and Business Manager — John 
Dressier. 

Other members of the staff include 
Richard Bell, Margaret Cox, Guy 
Dobbs, Louise Keller, Robert Mays, 
Robert Nichols, Howard Paine, Feme 
Poet, Frances Prutzman, William 
Reed, Betty Ann Rutherford, David 
Shaner, and Genevieve Stansfield 
while the new members are Margaret 
Bordwell, Robert Guinivan, Ruth 
Heminway, Martha Jane Koontz, 
Robert Ness and Floda Trout. 

This year freshmen who are inter- 
ested in working on La Vie may try 
out as cub reporters in which capac- 
ity they will receive training and be 
able to prove their ability. In addi- 
tion to this training the entire staff 
expects to study journalism in order 
to improve the La Vie. 

The new arrangement when in effi- 
cient working order will enable every 
individual on the staff to take care 
of a definite field. Thus no one per- 
son should be carrying too heavy a 
load and more will be intimately asso- 
ciated with the school paper. 



y.W.C.A. Plans And Plays At Gretna 



by Martha Jane Koontz 



Traditionally the first weekend af- 
ter the formal opening of the school 
year is the time for the YWCA Cabi- 
net to go to Mt. Gretna for its annual 
Retreat. So on Friday afternoon the 
fourteen girls who comprise the Cabi- 
ne t with Mrs. Lynch as chaperon 
Parted f or two and a half days of 
Wor k and play. 

at fh a Sh ° rt time after their arrival 
toe Geyer cottage they had a bright

a Mt. Gretna again the girls 



made short work of their dinner, and 
then settled down around the fire- 
place for a business session. Anna 
Mae Bomberger, the president, pre- 
sided as the Cabinet planned its 
year's work. In general outline the 
program follows that of other years. 
Dates and plans for the Freshman 
Tea, the Big and Little Sister Vesper 
Service, Heart - Sister Week, and 
Mothers' Weekend were all discussed. 

Because of a vacancy on the Cabi- 
net, Eleanor Witmeyer was elected 
Day Student Representative. Anoth- 
er important item of business was the 
election of the Freshman Cabinet. 
Those chosen were: North Hall, Ruth 
Haverstock and Dorothy Jean Light; 
South Hall, Betty Grube and Betty 
Dougherty; West Hall, Emma Kath- 
erine Miller and Hazel Fornoff ; Day 
Students, Verna Stonecipher and 
Marian Kreider. Upperclassmen who 
remember the convenience of the daily 
newspapers and current magazines 
that were furnished by the "Y" last 
year will be glad to know that the 
service will be continued this year. 

In addition to these regular items 
of business there were two new ones 
on the docket. The first was the re- 
vision of the constitution. Because 
the present constitution was written 
quite a few years ago it no longer 
satisfies the needs of the organiza- 
tion A committee on revision was 
appointed to remedy this at the earli-

110 New Students 
Enroll For 1940-41 

The number of new students en- 
rolled at Lebanon Valley College for 
1940-41 is approximately 110. The 
number of men students is double that 
of women students since there are 74 
men and 36 women. Of this num- 
ber about 50 are day students. Six 
students have transferred from other 
colleges to become members of the 
junior class here. There are also 
three students taking post graduate 
work. The total enrollment is slight- 
ly lower than that of last year. A 
new, more selective policy may be held 
accountable for this. 



Soph Quittie Heads 
Soon To Be Chosen 

by Robert Guinivan 

This article will, no doubt, be of in- 
terest to everyone, but unquestionab- 
ly call the special attention of 
every sophomore. Perhaps i L s con- 
tents will seem novel to most stud- 
ents, but, on the other hand, the sub- 
stance of the paragraph appears, first, 
feasible and secondly, mildly impera- 
tive. 

Well, it is time to tell what this is 
about. From the present sophomore 
class will be selected in the near fu- 
ture a list of names to be submitted 
to faculty for approval — approval for 
editor and business manager of the 
1943 Quittie. After selection by the 
class, these new officers will serve on 
the present '42 Quittie staff as co- 
editor and co-business manager. 



Artists Named For 
Concert Series 

The National Symphony Orchestra, 
under the baton of Hans Kindler, will 
make its appearance in Lebanon in 
the near future as the main attrac- 
tion of this season's Community Con- 
cert series. In addition, the associa- 
tion will present later Carola Goya, 
a Spanish dancer, and Charles Kull- 
man, lyric tenor of the Metropolitan 
Opera Company, in two interesting 
programs. The Lancaster Associa- 
tion is as yet able to announce but 
one of its artists who is John Charles 
Thomas, famed American baritone. 



CONGRESSMAN KUNKEL 
SPEAKS AT L. V.'S 76TH 
OPENING EXERCISES 

Conservatory Faculty Furnish 
Musical Program 

The seventy-sixth opening exercises of Lebanon Valley College were held 
Monday, September 23, at 10:30 A. M. The devotions were conducted by the 
college pastor, Dr. William A. Wilt. They were followed by a few words of 
greeting by President Lynch who then introduced the principal speaker of 
the morning. 



Cambell First To 
Present Recital 

Professor R. Porter Campbell, Mus. 
B., organ instructor at Lebanon Val- 
ley College, will present the first fac- 
ulty recital of the season Monday, 
October 14th, at 8:15 p. m., in Engle 
Hall. 

Mr. Campbell has had unusual 
training and experience in the mu- 
sical world. After graduation from 
Lebanon Valley Conservatory of Mu- 
sic he taught piano, history, and the- 
ory here. During the summer of 1921 
he studied under Aloys Kramer and 
Arthur Fveidheim in New York. In 
1923 and 1924, he studied under the 
world renown organist, Pietro Yon, 
in New York and spent the summer 
of 1924 studying with him in Italy. 

Professor Campbell has been pro- 
fessor of organ at the Lebanon Valley 
Conservatory of Music since 1920. At 
present he is organist at St. Luke's 
Episcopal Church in Lebanon. 

His students all know him as an 
exacting teacher and everyone knows 
his splendid musical ability and mas- 
ter technique at the organ. 



The Honorable John C. Kunkel, of 
Harrisburg, graduated from Penn 
State with a degree of B.S., following 
which he went to Harvard where he 
earned his degree of LL.B. After be- 
ing admitted to the bar, he practiced 
for some years in the city of Har- 
risburg. Mr. Kunkel is at the pres- 
ent time serving in the House of Rep- 
resentatives, where he is serving the 
interests of the nineteenth district of 
Pennsylvania. Through his experi- 
ences in the House, Mr. Kunkel was 
well qualified to speak to us on the 
workings of our governmental system, 
for said the speaker, ". . . if we are 
to continue as a democracy, it is nec- 
essary for the people of the United 
States to know more about the actual 
workings of the national govern- 
ment." Congressman Kunkel contin- 
ued by pointing out that due to the 
size of the House, the group was brok- 
en up into forty-seven standing 
committees who deal with the prob- 
lems as they arise. For purposes of 
illustration, Congressman Kunkel dis- 
cussed the problems which arose from 
several bills which had been before 
the House recently. The address was 
closed with this plea, "Preserve de-

Love Bullets Arouse L V. Campus ] 



by Floda Trout 



Last night between nine-thirty and 
ten o'clock, the campus of Lebanon 
Valley suffered somewhat of a shock 
when the still night air reverberated 
with the staccato reports of two pis- 
tol shots fired from the arch way of 
the Men's Dorm by 'Maurie" Erd- 
man. The bullets found their mark 
in the body of Bob Dresel as the un- 
suspecting victim was leaving the 
dorm. 

Erdman, incensed by hatred and 
driven temporarily insane by heavy 
drinking, had gained possession of a 
revolver from an unknown source and 
had stalked through the dorm in 
search of his victim. Seeing Dresel 
descending the stairs to leave the 
dorm, he rushed after him and fired 
point-blank at the unsuspecting Dres- 
el who staggered and fell into the 
open passageway of the dorm where 
his friends found him and carried him 
into the dorm. They attempted in 
vain to stop the flow of blood until 
the services of a doctor could be ob- 
tained. In the bedlam which ensued 
the actual crime, Erdman escaped. 

The disastrous meeting of Erdman 
and Dresel was the climax of a ris- 
ing tension marked by encounters of 
an unpleasant nature between the two 
and rising indignation on the part of 
the student body. The situation was 



brought to a head by the interven- 
tion of Faculty and Men's Senate. 

"Dottie" Schindel, the third corner 
of the triangle which motivated the 
crime, was prostrated with grief 
when she heard the news. She gain- 
ed enough strength, however, to pull 
herself free from helping and detain- 
ing hands and to dash across the 
campus from North Hall to the Men's 
Dorm where she demanded that she 
be taken to Dresel. Exhausted by 
shock and effort she succumbed in a 
dead faint from which she was re- 
vived with difficulty and led sobbing 
back to her room. 

General hysteria reigned over the 
campus and in the dorms where key- 
ed up nerves were beginning to give 
way on all sides. In the midst of the 
excitement on campus, Dr. Lynch ap- 
peared expressing his disappointment 
in and denunciation of an institution 
and student body that could let such 
a tragedy occur when it might have 
been avoided by the proper handling 
and legislation on the part of the gov- 
erning- bodies. 

Meanwhile Dresel, sinking fast, 
was removed to the offices of Dr. 
Montieth where little hope was given 
for his recovery. 

Freshmen were pressed into ser-

welcome 



frosh 



LA VIE COLLEGIENNE wishes 
to extend a welcome to all new stu- 
dents on campus. Although numer- 
ous other organizations have greeted 
you previous to this time, LA VIE'S 
greeting is not less sincere, even if a 
trifle late. The name of our paper de- 
picts in an excellent manner what 
our publication attempts to do, name- 
ly, to portray the various aspects of 
college life. From the very beginning 
of your college days, we want you to 
feel that LA VIE is your paper for 
your instruction as well as for your 
entertainment. If you wish to criti- 
cize it, our only request is that such 
criticism should be constructive, for 
any behind the back objections will 
harm you as well as the school. Co- 
operate with us and you will help 
make LA VIE to be The College Pa- 
per. 



more pep, please 

And now a word to the old students. 
At the beginning of each college year, 
LA VIE always finds it necessary to 
remind the college, as a whole, that 
"ye old college pep" is lacking and 
that more enthusiasm is necessary if 
Lebanon Valley is to be a vital and 
progressive institution. No one has 
to be told this year that the ultimat- 
um is absolutely necessary. All one 
has to do is to recall to mind the F. 
& M. game last Saturday. While F. 
& M. cheerleaders rallied their stands 
and "rah-rahed" their team to vic- 
tory, we sat with "dead-pans," refus- 
ing to encourage our team in any 
way. Surely, we are not children, who 
cry at every failure and refuse to 
play. 

Let us start a new regime tomor- 
row night by displaying wholehearted 
school spirit of true college calibre. 



journalists 

Next Tuesday afternoon, October 8, 
the LA VIE staff will interview all 
persons especially interested in jour- 
nalism and who wish to become mem- 
bers of the staff. Interviews will be 
conducted from one o'clock until four 
in the, LA VIE office, which is situ- 
ated on the second floor of the library. 
Inexperience will not be considered 
a handicap, for special classes in 
newspaper work will be offered 
throughout the year. Take advantage 
of this opportunity, it will help you 
as well as the paper. 



The Highwayers 

by Alf Noise 

Backed by Annville's mighty police 
force and defended by my lawyer Cris, 
I launch upon a column that day stud- 
ents love to read, but fear lest they 
are listed among the chosen ones. My 
scope is broad, my pen is firey, and 
my tuition is paid; so ladies and gen- 
tlemen, beware! 

If you should hear a "frosh" being 
hailed as "cubbard" or "Old Mother 
Hubbard," you can be sure it is Ken 
Gerhart. Ken fell heir to this name 
when he reported to an angry group 
of seniors that his "dink" was in his 
cubbard (locker, in this country). 

In keeping with the traditional 
force that has lured so many of our 
fellow-chemists to the dwelling of the 
N. H. Sirens (figuratively speaking), 
Bob Breen opens to "Chapter 2" in a 
living romance. Organic chemists 
have need of ice in their experiments, 
so Bob shall have an excuse for go- 
ing to the kitchen; but they don't 
need "car load quantities" (quote A. 
B.). 

Do you know that we have royalty 
on our campus this year? In case you 
are among the ignorant, Lebanon (fa- 
mous for its "baloney" mines) cele- 
brated its bicentennial anniversary; 
and from its throng of luscious wo- 
men, the vast populous (?) selected 
"Liz" Kerr as queen of the pageant- 
ry. "Liz" has long past lived her 
days of glory, but she is unable to 
live down the nickname of "Queenie." 

I think it only just that we should 
give a salute to Private "Dick" Hart- 
man and Sergeant "Bill" Defenderfer 
who are camping rather than "cam- 
pusing" this year. Both of these 
well-known juniors were calied to a 
year's service with the P. N. G. After 
October sixteenth, we may be able to 
send them several trained M. D. S. 
(card specialists) so that they shall 
not be always playing "double soli- 
taire." 

The annual swarm of freshmen 
paying their visit to the infirmary 
has begun. Now its hard enough for 
the men to go down to S. H. and be 
told what is wrong with ,hem, but to 
take the wrong route proves to be 
even more embarrassing. One lass, 
after having directed male students 
from the maze of corridors to their 
destination sighed, "And I thought 
this was a girls' dorm." 

Traveling conserve students, es- 
pecially the ladies, are known for 
their "automobile opera" (some is 
fairly good and others is qui e odor- 
iferous). It is reported that on pass- 
ing June Hollinger one morning last 
week that she was driving along the 
road and singing away like a birdie. 
Now her car was empty, so we don't 
know whether her usual passengers 
got out and hopped or were lying in 
a helpless condition on the floor. 

Bill McKnight payed for one of 
his books in pennies; and as he count- 
ed them out before the librarian, he 
was overheard saying, "Some fresh- 
man felt lucky, so we matched coins. 
Poor boy! if he only knew a 'pro' 
when he saw one."

mocracy now, for once it is lost it can 
only be regained with the loss of blood 
and the sword." 

After a short interlude there was a 
program presented by several mem- 
bers of the faculty of the conserva- 
tory. Those participating were Prof. 
Myron Taylor, tenor, accompanied by 
Mrs. Taylor; Prof. R. Porter Camp- 
bell, organ, and the newest addition 
of the faculty, Prof. Joseph Battista, 
piano. 




jazz notes 

by Maurie Erdman 



Fresh from the summer's ether 
swings a new band "playing the 
sweetest hat of popular music" and 
guaranteed to make you look its way. 

This young man played clarinet 
solos for Jan Savitt a few short years 
ago when Jack Wharton and Carlotta 
Dale were still vocalizing. He was 
at the top as a soloist when Bon Bon 
first sang the "Basin Street Blues" 
lor Jan. His clarinet work flows 
smoo'hly in the style first started by 
Artie Shaw. You guessed it! Joe 
Kern! 

A typical college girl's dream, Joe 
is an all around fellow. Five feet, nine 
inches tall, weighs about one-forty, 
has blonde curly hair, not to mention 
as smooth a stage personality as Kay 
Kyser. 

The band is made up of a five man- 
ned section along Glenn Miller's lines, 
five brass, three of which are trum- 
pets, plus the old unchangeable num- 
ber of rhythm. Utilizing Glen Gray's 
idea of a clarinet quartet, Joe substi- 
tutes a muted brass background for 
the fading sand-blast variety of Ben- 
ny Goodman. Kern himself takes the 
clarinet rides with as smooth a sway 
as you'll hear anywhere. 

All good bands have a good vocal- 
ist and arranger. This band is far 
from an exception. The soft tenor 
voice of Joe Martin combines the best 
of the Eberly brothers and Frank 
Sinatra. The arrangements are ex- 
cellent on the whole. Kern's version 



of the new Bob Chester introduction 
"Rhumboogie," uses the originality 
present in the ability of all first class 
showmen. The recently revived style 
of boogie-woogie shines here at its 
best rivaled only by specialists in the 
field like Meade Lux Lewis, Jimmie 
Yancey and Albert Ammon. 

For novelty the Seven Little Ker- 
nals take the stand. This sextet uses 
the old Raymond Scott style of tricky 
reeds and muted trumpets. Of inter- 
est here is the noticeable trend to- 
ward the pace set by John Kirby. In 
this group you'll notice one of the 
best hot violins in modern swing. 

Now gang don't misunderstand me. 
This band sounds as though there was 
little originality. That's where you're 
wrong. It takes a keen originality to 
be able to choose the correct propor- 
tions of the best bands and smooth 
out the kinks where they meet. This 
young man has included the deep 
rhythm of Tommy Dorsey, the brass 
of Glen Gray, the reeds of Glenn Mil- 
ler, the snappy, light styles of Kirby 
and Scott not to mention a Shaw 
style clarinet. If you don't think it's 
a tough job to add something else 
from your own mind and still keep 
it rich, smooth, flowing, you have an- 
other guess coming. 

Joe Kern and his orchestra may be 
heard each Thursday at 7:15 P. M. 
over WCAU, Philadelphia. Listen in 
and I'm sure you'll agree he is on his 
way to the top brackets. 



Stage Whispers 



It's surprising how a little leisure 
time does draw a person out. Take 
for example the discoveries of the 
summer. 

Elmer Hackman was co-director of 
the Lititz Dramatic Theatre which 
presented "Our Town" in true Wilder 
style. This play was written to be 
staged without scenery, and the novel 
stage conditions kept the audience (and 
the cast) always on the alert. Elmer 
was exceptionally lucky in having an 
audience who didn't put up a howl 
about scenery, although some of them 
did think that the theatre was finan- 
cially embarrassed. However, there 
was one well-meaning person who 
asked what those people were doing 
on the stage just sitting there on 
chairs in the last scene! . . And then, 
of course, there were a few boners 
pulled on the big nights. The first 



night the heroine spent a precarious 
fifteen minutes on a very wobbly lad- 
der as the electrician had accidentally 
appropriated the one meant to be 
used in that scene. . . Then our boy 
Elmer missed his cue, and in the role 
of the dead Farmer Brown came 
stalking on the stage and settled down 
on his appointed tombstone after the 
curtain had risen. 

Last Friday the Lebanon Little 
Theatre gave its third performance 
of the winter season. The play was 
"Broken Dishes," and the director was 
none other than Mary Zartman who 
starred in "Pride and Prejudice" 
three years ago when she was a stu- 
dent here. From all reports, it was 
the best play that they have produced 
to date, so orchids to the directress; 
the actors, especially the leads; and 
Bob Spohn, also a graduate of L. V. 
C, who is president of the organiza- 
tion. 



Dutching It 

With Ira Asaph 
Iliya gang! To the old gang th 
prefatory should suffice, but f 0r ^ 
benefit of the frosh, etc. — whom ^ 
hope will become our avid and dey^ 
ed readers — an introduction j s p e 
haps in order. Who is this bird fr I 
Well, my little innocents, he i s 
campus Wincheller, a sort of lit era 1 
flatfoot, Yehudi with a flair f 0r ^ 
via. My feeble attempts at self. ex 
pression has been lambasted as 
and childish, but since it is my J^} 
to bring a little ray of cheer into the 
lives of the great majority I niUgt 
continue my peurile way until com 
plaints become audible and over 
whelming; or at least signed. 



Frosh boners are legion and their 
tribe doth seem to increase. Tradi 
tional by now is the one pulled by 
Margie Bordwell way back in '37, 
ter addressing seniors as frosh fa 
several embarrassing instances, the 
ever-ingenious Margo decided to pl ay 
the ole Army game and begin with 
"Are you a senior?" So comes a "Y" 
tea and our heroine finds herself 
chatting with a charming young 
blonde. Up pipes Miargie: "And are 
you a senior?" Picture M. B.'s crim- 
son cranium upon discovering that 
she was addressing a faculty lady. 



Well, be that as it may, this year's 
fur-trimmed mustache cup (appro- 
priately engraved) goes to arch 
glamor boy Garbade who upon ar- 
riving at school via choo choo noticed 
a stranger obviously befuddled by the 
vastness and confusion of the Ann- 
ville station. Always willing to lend 
a helping hand, Joe approached with, 
"Are you going to this dump too?" 
Getting an answer in the affirmative, 
Our Boy Friday proceeded to make 
conversation. "What are you taking?" 
The best reports assert that the new 
prof of ivory tickling retorted, "I'm 
not taking it, I'm giving it." 



Even more instructive than congo 
lessons from Madam La Zonga and 
more useful than lessons in wooing 
Dogpatch style are the bridge lessons 
offered by Ken Guthrie at his Friday 
soirees. Ira knows that more than 

one naive femme rose to the bait

ba ,ion Valley College opened its 1940 football season on Saturday by 
iag t ne first game on tne schedule to Franklin and Marshall 21-0 on the 
:ii' opp ' f i e id at Lancaster. The F. and M. team served notice early in the 
lf ttel that it was determined to win the game to regain the prestige lost in

ruled good when Fox was caught in- 
terfering with the latter's attempt to 
snare the ball. Gilly caught a second 
pass by Kuhn to bring the Blue and 
White to the oppositions 15. Kenny, 
however, intercepted Kuhn's next 
attempt and F. and M. took the ball. 
The quarter ended with L. V. in 
possession of the ball on F. and M.'s 
42 yard line. 

An entire team replaced the F. and 
M. starters at the beginning of the 
second period and went to work im- 
mediately. Hamscher intercepted a 
Lebanon Valley pass on his own 25 
but was downed in his tracks. L. V. 
linemen broke through to block a punt 
when the second stringers failed to 
gain for F. and M. and Gilly advanced 
to the opponents 28 after gathering 
the ball in as it crossed the line of 
scrimmage. Kuhn and Mikilo teamed 
up on plunges and shovel passes to 
carry the ball to the Diplomat 5 
where the Blue and White attack 
bogged down. 

Quick carried the ball to the 37 and 
lateraled to Hamscher who advanced 
to the L. V. 41 before he was brought 
to earth. L. V. was penalized half the 
distance to its goal line when the 
officials detected unnecessary rough- 
ness. Quick bucked and sliced through 
the L. V. line for 15 yards on two 
P'ays and then drove to the 4. Ham-

Here the Dutchmen braced and F.

tossed an aerial to Kuhn who brought 
the ball to the F. and M. 40. The 
Blue and White could advance no 
further and lost the ball on 3 un- 
completed passes and a wide end 
run. Monroe threw two passes to 
Kenny and Ferrari and carried the 
ball himself to the Valley 28. The 
F. and M. backs were brought down 
by the L. V. linemen for a gain of six 
yards on three attempts but then 
raced off-tackle for 22 yards and the 
third touchdown of the afternoon for 
the Diplomats. Draper's low kick 
cleared the bar to bring the score to 
21-0. Substitutes flooded the field for 
both teams and the game ended with 
F. and M. in possession of the ball 
an the Blue and White 22 yard line. 

Manotti, Quick, Monroe, and Ham- 
scher played best for the victors in 
the backfield while Shibanoff played 
an outstanding game at tackle as the 
F. and M. line turned in a good de- 
fensive game. The Diplomats deserve 
a great deal of praise for their splen- 
did passing attack and pass defense. 
Only 5 of 20 attempted passes by 
L. V. were completed while F. and M. 
completed 8 out of 12.

est possible moment. 

The second item of new business 
was to plan a series of monthly so- 
cial affairs. The YMCA will cooper- 
ate in making "Y Night" a fun ses- 
sion in which all students can join. 
Tentatively "Y Night" is set for the 
second Friday of every month. Plans 
are under way for some really differ- 
ent types of entertainment, but they 
will be kept secret until the proper 
time. 

With all the business taken care of 
everyone joined in a cup of tea and 
then — then the tricks began. Even af- 
ter everyone else finally went to sleep, 
one ambitious funster got up and 
turned off the alarm which had been 
set for an early hour so that some of 
the girls could hike up Governor Dick. 
The discovery of this cruel deed next 
morning caused quite a storm, and 
although its perpetrator would not 
confess, many accusations were made. 
An ambitious few did climb the moun- 
tain, but at a pace so fast that there 
was much complaining of stiff legs 
the rest of the day. 

Sunday School and the morning 
worship service were conducted on 
the shore of the lake in the mid-morn- 
ing. One last walk around the lake, 
and then everyone returned to the cot- 
tage for dinner. But alas! what was 
to be baked ham refused to bake. In 
despair the cooks complained that "it 
was funny-looking ham, anyway." 

One o'clock came and went without 
dinner; two o'clock followed suit; at 
last at a quarter of three the belated 
meal was set forth on tables out on 
the porch. But when the "funny-look- 
ing" ham appeared, to everyone's 
amusement and the cooks' chagrin, it 
was not ham, but beef! Shortly after 
this lively meal, the group returned 
to campus, tired after a full weekend, 
but eager for the year's program of 
campus activities to start.

BOSNYAK

tli'e team to meet Ark. A. and M. 



* J he Spectator 
by joe 



Greetings to you, sport fans. Here 
we are back again to give you a few 
odds and ends from the campus sports 
as we see it. 

Our enthusiasm is a trifle stifled 
after that pigskin encounter on the 
Williamson gridiron. It's true that 
F. & M. has a large and powerful 
squad, but it's far from the physical 
condition it should be in to play the 
big boys they have scheduled. If you 
remember correctely, they were the 
lads who called for all the time outs. 

As for the boys that wear the col- 
ors of our Alma Mater, well don't be 
too depressed. We feel certain that 
better days are coming, starting on 
Friday night against Arkansas A. & 
M. 

Incidentally, we might mention 
that Arkansas A. & M. is considered 
one of the most colorful teams in the 
country. Reports tell us that they 
even pay their student manager. They 
also won National recognition last 
year by playing a ten game schedule 
all away from home, most of them in 
the East. 

We would like to doff our tattered 
chapeau to Johnny Quick of F. & M., 
who showed us some of the nicest 
running in a football game that has 
been witnessed in a long time. He 
could certainly give Lou Montgomery 
of Boston College, a run for his 
money. 

One prediction, and then we close. 
Frank Kuhn of our own Blue and 
White should be one of the best backs 
produced around these parts. His 
running leaves little to be desired, 
while his passing is as good as the 
best if he is given even just a little 
protection. Don't saw we didn't tell 
you. 

SPORTSRAIT 

Today, we would like to honor one 
of the grandest men on our football 
team. Not hailing from a big school, 
he didn't have a great big reputation, 
but he made the old timers look up 
when, in his first year, he was a 
powerful member of the varsity. 

Brought up in a region where you 
have to be tough to get along, he 
learned to use that toughness, fairly 
and cleanly, to a good advantage. His 
consistent playing won him a perma- 
nent position on the team, and sel- 
dom was he found on the bench. He 
asked for nothing, but just got in 
there and played. 

His work was not to go without re- 
ward. Now in his final year, his abil- 
ity has won for him the captaining 



Sports t^Jn Shorts

Continuing their policy of a girl in 
every sport or a sport for every girl, 
the cabinet of the W. A. A. laid plans 
to promote the minor sports such as 
fencing, hiking, archery, ping pong, 
and badminton as well as the major 
sports of hockey and basketball. As 
part of this policy they plan to dis- 
tribute a list of the minor sports 
among the girls and have them check 
their first and second favorite sport. 
When the season for the chosen sports 
comes, these girls will be notified by 
the sport leader that this sport is 
being started and the schedule will 
be posted at that time. Another in- 
novation this year is the beginning 
of a fencing team of girls. The W. 
A. A. has decided to buy equipment 
for six girls who will be trained by 
Maurice Erdman and Frank Zimmer- 
man. In the event that these girls 
become adept enough a team will be 
formed that will fence with outside 
colleges. 

Dottie Schindel informed the cabi- 
net that as tennis leader she would 
try to run a fall tennis tournament. 
A tentative match with Albright Col- 
lege has been arranged. 

At the present time Lucille Esben- 
shade has reformed the archery club 
and the members have been practic- 
ing. If anyone desires to join this 
club or if they desire to learn to arch 
they may do so by contacting Miss 
Esbenshade.

Since some of our faculty members 
eluded each trap set for them, and 
since others, although caught, were 
too reticent to divulge to us their ac- 
tivities of the summer, this item is 
necessarily incomplete. 

Dean Stonecipher very obligingly 
disclosed that he and the family had 
motored to Ohio, Tennessee, and Lou- 
isiana in which places they visited 
relatives. 

Despite the fact that Dr. Lynch fills 
his position with the college most ef- 
fectively, he did some more post-doc- 
toral work at Columbia relative to 
college administration. 

Small wonder it is that Miss Gil- 
lespie came back this fall looking so 
delightfully refreshed. How could she 
be otherwise, having visited such 
places as Canada, New Mexico, and 
the western states. 

And then there's that sad experi- 
ence of Dr. Derickson. It seems that 
his intended trip to Florida was inde- 
finitely postponed when an onslaught 
of hay fever assailed him. 

With his characteristic energy and 
thoroughness, Dr. Wallace spent some 
time exploring the headwaters of the 
Delaware and Susquehanna Rivers, 
thus furthering research on his work 
of Conrad Weiser. 

The Shenk family migrated to Boul- 
der, Colorado, for part of the summer 
while Dr. Shenk and his daughters 
took some work at the university 
there. 

And we do hope that Doctors 
Stokes and Balsbaugh won't mind if 
we reveal the fact that those two gen- 
tlemen farmers matched hoes with 
one another this summer while giving 
their all for the cause of Dr. Black's 
new property. 

Rutledges and Carmeans have also 
been busy with their recently acquired 
homes. And, by the way, Mrs. Car- 
mean was asked most innocently if 
they were still living in the spring 
house. For any who are in doubt, 
they are comfortably established in a 
summer house until the rest is fin- 
ished. 

Nella Miller, piano instructor at 
Lebanon Valley College since 1933, 
has been granted a year's leave of ab- 
sence. During this period Miss Miller 
will be engaged in intensive study un- 
der the famous teacher, Guy Maier. 
She is now living in Pasadena, Cali- 
fornia, where she will also give con- 
certs in addition to pursuing her 
study. Joseph Battista, brilliant 
young concert artist, will teach dur- 
ing Miss Miller's absence.

LA VIE COLLEGIENNE, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 3, 1940 



Quittie Pictures Cause 
Comment 

It has been made known to the 
members of the Senior Class that 
their pictures will not be included in 
the forthcoming yearbook. LA VIE 
has received some interesting com- 
ments upon the subject from the sen- 
iors. 

PAUL STOUFFER— It is a step 
which violates tradition, but it is the 
logical thing to do. Considering that 
the seniors have had their pictures in 
as juniors, why have their pictures in 
again? 

RICHARD BELL— I think that if 
the senior pictures are going to be 
omitted, the cost should also be de- 
ducted from the activities fee. 

MARTHA JANE KOONTZ— My 
opinion is that since the year book is 
a junior publication, we should all co- 
operate with them and permit them 
to publish it the way they want to. 

WILLIAM REED— I am in favor of 
the idea because it does away with 
the expense of having to pay another 
dollar for being photographed again 
this year. 

MARLIN ESPENSHADE— Since 
it is we seniors' last year here, I feel 
that we are entitled to individual pic- 
tures, even though permitting the 
juniors to have the write-ups. 

FERNE POET — Considering the 
circumstances under which the year- 
book is being published this year, I 
approve of the idea because I think 
that the juniors should have the 
privilege of deciding whether the sen- 
ior pictures should be included or not. 

CHARLES BEITTEL— Since the 
yearbook is a junior publication, it 
seems to me that the Junior Class 
should be permitted to decide their 
own policies in regard to omissions 
and inclusions in the yearbook.

vice to comb the countryside in search 
of Erdman, to locate doctors for the 
sensitive souls who were finding the 
shock too much for them, and to give 
blood to prolong the life of the dying 
victim. The latter was of no avail. 
News was received that Dresel had 
died without regaining consciousness. 

In the midst of the emotional ex- 
haustion and shock that prevailed, 
there were those who had the pres- 
ence of mind to think of the dead 
man's family and to start a collection 
for flowers to which the response was 
indeed willing and generous, especial- 
ly on the part of the freshmen. 

News was received that the villain 
had been earned. Soon, heavily guard- 
ed, he was dragged across campus, 
harried by cries of "Lynch him! Lynch 
him!" to the home of Lawyer Ging- 
rich. There, after subjecting the 
principal witnesses to a gruelling 
cross-examination, Gingrich declared 
the case depended on the CARPUS 
DELICTI, and demanded that the body 
be produced. 

Students waited with bated breath 
in the crowded room. Finally the 
victim arrived but not in a hearse or 
on a stretcher. Dresel WALKED in 
smiling. 

The horror of the night drew to a 
close with the sight of the victim's 
"spirit" and his murderer roaming the 
halls of the men's dorm together, arm 
in arm.

It's unbelievable in this day and age 
and yet but fifteen years ago the 
Blue and White iron men made just 
such a record for L. V. C. In that 
game the powers of the Dutchmen 
was shown by such men as Gelbert, 
Singley and Piersol. "So good was 
their forward passing attack, that out 
of about twenty attempts, all were 
completed for gains with but two ex- 
ceptions, three of these passes going 
for touchdowns — twice intercepting 
Albright passes and converting them 
into Lebanon Valley touchdowns." 

"The Blue and White goal line was 
never in danger. Only on two occa- 
sions did Albright have the pigskin 
within the Lebanon Valley thirty 
yard line. On both these occasions, 
the Dutchmen held the line like a 
stone wall and Albright was forced 
to give up the ball on downs." Pier- 
sol it seems had a toe so well educat- 
ed that in addition to making all the 
extra points after touchdowns, he 
booted two beautiful goals from 
placement. What a game! Even in 
the last period when our second team 
was put in Albright was unable to 
make a gain. We were all born fif- 
teen years too soon! ! 

Two new departments were started 
in this eventful year of 1925. They 
were the Business Administration and 
the Public School Music Departments. 

The Girls Varsity Basketball Team 
elected as captain Nelle Rabenstine. 
Mrs. Mary C. Green, Dean of Women, 
brought honor to the college in being 
elected Secretery of the Deans of 
Women of Pennsylvania Colleges at 
the fifth meeting of the association. 
...Delegates represented L. V. C. at 
the annual Women's Inter-Collegiate 
Student Government Conference at 
Wellesley College and brought back 
new and interesting ideas concerning 
the government of campus women. 
* * * 

In order not to be too cut and dried 
considering only the news angles ot 
the campus, humor was introduced in 
the cleverly written column ''Kampus 
Kraks." Dave Shroyer's remark in a 
restaurant is a Fair Sample of the 
wet appearing under this heading — 
"Waiter, get me a rabbit hound, there 
is a hair in my soup." 

And so, good-bye, until times past 
again return! 



Y Plans Outdoor Vespers 

The Y. W. C. A. and Y. M. C. A. 
are co-operating to conduct vesper 
services for the students every Sun- 
day 'evening at 6 o'clock. The pro- 
grams for these worship periods are 
to be varied in nature but will follow 
the theme ''Finding Christ" through 
all the first semester. The special 
theme for the month of October is 
"Finding Christ Through Nature." 
Plans have been made to hold as many 
as possible of the October meetings 
out of doors. There will be special 
speakers, largely members of the 
faculty, for some services, and others 
will include hymn sings, poetry or 
other literature and candlelight ser- 
vices. The idea is new on our cam- 
pus but can be carried through with 
the cooperation of interested stud- 
ents. 

Plans were discussed at both cabi- 
net meetings for a social period to be 
held jointly by both the "Y's" at a 
time set tentatively for the second 
Friday of each month. While the pro- 
gram for these events will vary, the 
object is to provide a more balanced 
schedule of social occasions for the 
students. 



Delphians Present Faculty 
Wives at Tea 

DELPHIAN 

Thursday, October 3, marked the 
first of Delphian's events for the en- 
teitainment of the freshmen girls. A 
tea, beginning at four o'clock had as 
its feature selections supplied by 
wives of the faculty. These musical 
numbers and light refreshments were 
presented in Delphian Hall. 

The next event on the Delphian 
rushing program is the hike which is 
scheduled for the tenth of October. 



Clio Party 



CLIO 

Clio started out its rushing season 
with a party for the Freshmen on 
Tuesday, October 1. Entertainment 
lasted from three to five. It was sup- 
plied by an Ouija board, to which 
the girls addressed questions and re- 
ceived answers, various other games, 
and a novel guessing contest dealing 
with song titles. While the scores 
were being tallied, the string trio, 
composed of Victoria Turco, Peggy 
Boyd, and Jessie Robertson perform-

Hackman On Bowes' 
Prize Winners Of '40 

On Thursday evening, September 5, 
Robert Hackman of Lititz, Pa., a sen- 
ior in the Conservatory of Music, ap- 
peared on the famous Major Bowes' 
Amateur Hour, which is broadcast 
from New York City. Mr. Hackman 
played the popular Bluebells of Scot- 
hind in his own variations on two 
musical instruments, the "sweet pota- 
to" and the "sweet potato" fife. His 
act was so well liked that he was ask- 
ed to appear with one of the Major 
Bowes' units, the Prize Winners of 
1940, when it played in Lebanon on 
Thursday, Friday, and Saturday of 
the following week. 

Upon being interviewed Mr. Hack- 
man stated: "I went to New York 
three days before the broadcast. I 
found the experience of being on the 
program very fascinating. I only saw 
Major Bowes when we went over the 
script together and on the night of 
the bi-oadcast. However, I might add 
that I don't think I'll plan a career 
on the stage."

Berkshires Boast Music Center ] 

by Ella R. Moyer 



The new Berkshire Music Center, 
established by the Boston Symphony 
Orchestra, represents a long cherish- 
ed plan of Dr. Koussevitzky, its con- 
ductor. The music center had its open- 
ln R season this past summer from 
lul y 8th to August 18th at Tangle- 
Wo °d, the beautiful 200 acre estate, 
whie h lies in the Berkshire hills be- 
twee n Lenox and Stockbridge. 
, T he Berkshire Music Festival had 
J ^ginning on the night of August 
-H 1934, (on the Dan Hanna es- 
,ate just west of the Stockbridge 
jj° wl ) under the baton of the late 
? H enry Hadley and the 65 mem- 
s ° rs °f the New York Philharmonic 
'^Phony Society Orchestra. The 
w jj rt of the Festival, on a career 
pre ° Se finance could not have been 
le ted by the most optimistic, gave 
^concerts to an audience of 6,000 
2> With an orchestra slightly

given by the estate of 



Hos to n o h ° me (Tanglewood), to 
S es ? ynipno ny Orchestra, the 



Mrs. Gorham Brooks of Boston. A 
larse tent was built, the number of 
concerts doubled and after the last 
of the 30,000 people had departed the 
Festival raised $80,000 and ground 
was broken for the Shed. Dedication 
of the huge Shed, designed by Eliel 
Saarinen and unique in musical arch- 
itecture and amazing in its accousti- 
cal propei'ties, was the highlight of 
the season of 1938. The orchestra 
gave 6 concerts, a total of 36,000 peo- 
ple coming from 40 states, Canada, 
and Europe. 

Announcement of the plans for the 
Berkshire Music Center almost over- 
shadowed the brillance of the 6 con- 
certs of the 1939 season. The assur- 
ance that the Festivals interpretive 
place in the world of music was to be 
augmented by a creative developing 
project, gave added proof that at 
Tanglewood one of the most dynamic, 
vital forces in music today was being 
mobilized. 

This year, 1940, marked the open- 
ing of the Berkshire Center on Mon- 
day, J.uly 8th with a picked group of 
.J00 students from every part of the 
United States and from Europe. As 
music takes its place in the life of 
America,, there is a corresponding 
desire for a broader comprehension of 
the Art. The fulfillment of this de- 
sire, for the time being impossible 
in Europe, becomes an added obliga- 
tion in America. It was with this in 
mind that the Berkshire Music Center 
was established.

W. & B. Chooses 
Comedy By Wilde 
Plans Made For Year 

Last night at 7:30 in Philo Hall 
the Wig and Buckle Club met for the 
first time in the 1940-41 season. 
Frank Shenk, the society's president, 
presided over the business session and 
set forth the year's plans. 

A one-act play tournament is the 
newest experiment of the club. Every 
senior member was invited to direct a 
one-act play sometime during the 
year. Once a month three plays will 
be presented as an evening's enter- 
tainment. A poll of the student body 
body will determine which plays were 
most enjoyed so that the three win- 
ners may be given together in the 
spring as a climax to the year's ef- 
forts. For use in this contest the Wig 
and Buckle invites anyone in the 
school to submit original manuscripts 
for one-act plays. These manuscripts 
may be handed to the club's secretary, 
Martha Jane Koontz, at any time 
from now until April 1941. 

Announcement was also made of 
the selection of Oscar Wilde's delight- 
ful comedy, "The Importance of Be- 
ing Earnest," as the club's vehicle for 
this fall. Dr. Struble will direct the 
play with the assistance of the fol- 
lowing committees: Stage and Proper- 
ties. Joseph Carr, Charles Miller, 
Richard Bell, Betty Foster and Mar- 
tha Davies; Advertising, Margaret 
Bordwell, Fay Brigham, and Gene- 
vieve Stansfield; Finance, Marlin Es- 
penshade, Martha Jane Koontz and 
Floda Trout; Makeup, Betty Anne 
Rutherford and Evelyn Ware. Pres- 
ent plans call for the production on 
Wednesday, November 20, at 8 P. M. 



L.V. Cooperates 
In Conscription 

Lynch asks students "to 
face unvarnished truth" 

Men register Oct. 16 

Next Wednesday, October 16, about 
60 students of Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege will register in accordance with 
the recently passed conscription bill. 
The college has secured the serwices 
of a special registrar from the Coun- 
ty Commissioners who will occupy a 
room in the Administration Building 
for this purpose. No student will be 
obliged to return to his home or to 
report at the regular registration of- 
fices in Annville, Lebanon, or Harris- 
burg. The registration of all students 
will take place at the college. The 
complete registration will take about 
twenty minutes, and students are 
urged to use their ^earliest free period 
in the day for this purpose. 

With regard to the part to be play- 
ed by the college in national defense, 
President Lynch stated that this in- 
stitution is fully cooperating with the 
Government. The enrollment at the 
college has been markedly affected 
both by the conscription act and the 
national emergency. Several students 
are in the National Guard, and few 
are in the regular U. S. Army. 

According to Dr. Lynch, the United 
States Government does not intend to 
establish an R. O. T. C. here, and the 
college will not likely request the set- 
ting up of such a department on the 
campus. He declared that a college 
education and military training do 
not go together, and either or both 
ai'e likely to suffer in an effort to 
combine them on a college campus. 

The President said : "I am in full 
sympathy with the defense program. 
International conditions have involved 
us beyond our ability to extricate our- 
selves. However, we should avoid war 
hysteria. College students have the 
right to know the unvarnished truth. 
When education becomes propaganda 
it betrays the students." 

Lebanon Valley College can make 
the following contributions in the na- 
tional emergency. The training of avi- 
ators, through the C. A. A. This will 
enable the Government to use the 
more skillful pilots for military pur- 
poses and to replace them by pilots 
trained under the C. A. A. 

Another contribution of the college 
will be the stressing of physical edu- 
cation. Dr. Lynch declared, "The soft- 
ness of American youth is self-evi- 
dent. France learned her lesson too 
late. A good physique is basic to na- 
tional defense in civil and military 
service. A sound mind and a sound 
body are still worthy educational ob- 
jectives. Students should do more than 
the schedule requires. Extensive hik- 
ing and participation in intra-mural 
sports will do much to improve the 
physique of the average college stu- 
dent. Many students are too lazy, 
not too busy, to use campus walks for 
the purpose of walking a few steps, 
and consequently spoil the beauty of 
the campus by making unsightly 
paths in all directions." 

In the third place, Lebanon Valley 
can help by providing an educational 
program in which academic freedom

national defense 

For the first time in the history of 
the United States, college people find 
themselves confronted with the prob- 
lem of conscription for the purposes 
of national defense during a period 
of "relative peace." The question im- 
mediately arises whether such a meas- 
ure is expedient for this country, 
even though wars are raging in other- 
parts of the world. And young peo- 
ple, especially those in our colleges 
and universities, are attempting to 
discover the correct attitude that 
should be assumed during such a 
crisis. 

Older persons, who have found their 
place in human affairs, usually accus- 
ed the younger generation of holding 
many incorrect views. Many of their 
observations are correct. However, 
these criticisms have also been true 
ii bout youth in former days when the 
situation was somewhat different. 
Concerning our latest problem, we are 
just as skeptical and cynical in our 
attitude toward conscription as our 
ciders were over the conditions which 
ultimately led to the first World 
War. 

Yet, their skepticism and cynicism 
did not lead to the undermining of the 
foundations of democracy and the de- 
mocratic way of life. 

Even though one might be disillus- 
ioned about our particular type of 
government, its methods and politics, 
we must^not assume a defeatist state 
of mind for then the strength of our 
democracy would be sapped. If na- 
tional defense through conscription 
provides a means for the preservation 
of our youthful ideals which can only 
be achieved through our republican 
form of government, let us support it. 

A New York Times' cartoon ex- 
presses in an excellent manner the re- 
quirements necessary for an adequate 
defense program. Follow it and our 
shores will be free from war:

Stage Whispers 



Well, did you try out for the Wig and Buckle play last night after the 
meeting? If you did, you already know something about the play; if not, 
sit tight. 

After much hashing and rehashing of all the plays that were ever writ- 
ten the one finally selected was that very famous and equally successful play 
of Oscar Wilde, "The Importance of Being Earnest." This social satire was 
designated by the author himself as being "a trivial comedy for serious peo- 
ple," and in discussing the play itself he has been reported to have said, "The 
first act is ingenious, the second beautiful, and the third abominably clever." 
Surely when such an egotist writes a play he wouldn'* risk making a blot 
on his family escutcheon by producing anything but the very best, and of 
course we wouldn't present anything else, either. 

The plot deals with a mild sort of Jekyll-Hyde character whose ac- 
cepted name is Jack, but who takes the more convenient one, Earnest, for 
social purposes. But, of course, when the young heroine appears on the 
scene, there is the inevitable mix-up involving said heroine whose name 
appears to be Gwendolyn, and a friend (?), Algernon. Then ensues a dash 
to the altar by both young men on behalf of the same girl. Complications 
arise, and the final results are both surprising and satisfying. 

The play is neither slapstick nor too philosophical; the characters are 
clever, and the scenery will be different. Until the opening I'll try to keep 
you posted about the latest results in "THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING 
EARNEST." 

CURTAIN 



jazz notes 

by Man ric Erdman 

This week let's turn our attention to a band which has emerged from 
the shadows and taken its place in the top brackets after five long years of 
patient effort. The name of Dorsey has long been rating acclaim but this 
time it isn't Tommy. 

Jimmie Dorsey's break with brother Tommy back in 1935 started a new 
life for the younger of the pair. As was expected Jimmie's band was a 
flop. Following his philosophy of "never hurry things" he kept plugging 
and playing to mediocre crowds. Gradually his name came to mean swing 
in Goodman s!yle. With an engagement at the Meadowbrook his stock 
jumped a notch. His engagement there last winter was definitely the shot 
in the arm his band needed. 

Spring rolls around and the summer tunes grow rotten as the annual 
slump in song writing takes its vacation. In the midst of the slump Ruth 
Lowe's tune taken over by Tommy D. came booming to the top. Decca re- 
leased two waxings featuring Jimmie playing two arrangements by Toots 
Camarota. Zoom. And brother Tcmmy finds competition he had never 
seen from his younger brother. "Six Lessons From Madame La Zonga" 
and "The Breeze and I" were smash hits. The unpredictable alligators 
screamed for Jimmie on dance floors all over the nation. A band which had 
been playing for an average of 5 G's a week skyrocketed in price. One 
Dorsey fan down Houston way, who would accept no substitute paid, $8,500 
for a one nighter. Naturally you wonder what made the nation rise sud- 
denly and clamor for "the king of the saxaphone". Let's find out. 

The four man reed along Goodman's lines is backed up by red hot 
sax and clarinet rides taken by the king. The brass is both hot and heavy 
like Miller's but only six in number. The rhythm section, typically solid in 
J. D.'s setup, is one of the finest in the business. For vocalizing Jimmie 
presents the famous Bob Eberly and vivacious, attractive, blonde Helen 
O'Connel. Camarata arrangements for sweet and swing are unscored un 
tried unbeaten. Tops in utility men is Charlie Fraiier who plays tenor 
and bass sax, clarinet and flute. On drums is one of the hottest skin beaters 
making rhythm by the name of Bobby Shutz. 

Keep watching this band in the 'next few weeks. My money will be 
saying he gets a good sponsor on a paying radio commercial this winter. 



The Highwayers 

by Alf Noise 
Although the tale of Johnny Tal- 
nack's adventure on the train may be 
ancient history in the "noise house" 
(Conserve), it is worth mentioning. 11 
all happened one of the first mornings 
when Johnny sleepily heard the con- 
ductor call, "Next stop, Annville!" 
Now down in Reading, John's home 
town, the train stops several times, so 
he decided to get off at Annville's next 
stop. But slumber came; and when he 
awakened, he found himself in Har- 
risburg. 

For bachelors and old maids a cer- 
tain freshman rule is simple; but for 
those who "are that way about each 
other," it is a horse of a different 
color. Imagine how Howard Paine 
must feel when he greets Verna 
Stonecipher, and all she can say is 
"hello!" Last year when Howard was 
a "frosh" he could say more than 
"hello!" to the blond high school 
girl. You're dealing with the W. C. 
C. this year Pair.e; we were too kind- 
hearted. 

It has been suggested that George 
Bryce be called "lamb" ("mutton" 
would be better) because "everywhere 
the Mary goes, the lamb (that man) 
is sure to go." 

Congratulations and good luck to 
Reverend Roger Morey, who was 
elected '.o a charge at the Lickdale U. 
B. Church. All th so who are ac- 
quainted with t is ministerial student, 
who his a friendly and sincere per- 
^nality, realize that it is about time 
that he receives some recognition. 

To those ladies who are interested 
in securing electric light bulbs, 40 and 
(!0 watt bulbs may be purchased at 
Cassel's or Grim's for fifteen cents. 
In other words cease taking bulbs 
from the W. D. S. R. 



t7n ,////ies ^Past 

by Autrefois 
Although "history repeats itself" 
and making it a "family affair" are 
phrases which smack of the banal, in 
this case their application is most fit- 
ting. It so happens that our new edi- 
tor-in-chief, Jane Y. Ehrhart is the 
third member of her family to edit 
the news instrument of Lebanon Val- 
ley College. Back in November of 
1912 Edna E. Yarkers, '13, started 
the 4th volume of the "COLLEGE 
NEWS" on its successful way. Last 
year Carl Y. Ehrhart was entrusted 
with the same duty in the issuance of 
the 16th volume of LA VIE COLLEG- 
IENNE. In this present school year 
Jane continues what may take on the 
semblance of family tradition. We 
wonder how many years we shall have 
to wait for the next one in line? 

While paging through those year- 
yellowed (?) pages of the COLLEGE 
NEWS the full pages devoted to hum- 
or alone struck my eye. Naturally, I 
yielded to temptation and found my- 
self reading the stuff they considered 
funny in those days. And it must be

L. V. 
In th 

politics of the mens' societies 
student class elections approach 1 ' 1 !' 
filthiness comparable 1o Tani 
Hall at its blackest. The 



many 
organic 

tion of the system is not so simni„ 
•4. ii ,i ""pie as 

it would appear on the surface. The 
bosses are not the smiling presidents 
or the hand-shaking "rush" men, but 
one or two strong arm boys lurking 
in the heights of the "cave" and the 
depths of "The Black Hole", who 
were tough enough and low enough 
to turn every situation to their own 
advantage. 

No, persevering reader, I do not 
suffer from hallucinations nor am I 
seeing snakes. I know whereof I 
speak. Why is it that certain of the 
B. M. O. C. (biggest mouths on cam- 
pus) have never paid one cent in class 
or society dues yet are always on hand 
at election time to tell you and me 
how to vote ? Why are even the nom- 
inees for the Men's Senate so care- 
fully chosen that the vote is sure to 
split favorably for one of the "boys"? 
Why did both societies announce a de- 
fied last spring? If EVERY member 
had jiaid his dues there would have 
been a plentitude of black ink. You 
and I paid. We'll probably pay thru 
the nose to make up the deficit, but 
the wardheelers will never take their 
hands out of their breeches except to 
gladhand the new crop of suckers. 

If it were impossible for the socie- 
ties to be run cleanly and efficiently, 
I would close my eyes and let myself 
be lulled gently to sleep by the sweet 
words of my society fellows. In 1938 
the president of one of the societies 
entered office wearing a lei of over 
one hundred dollars deficit from the 
year preceding. Because he forced 
immediate payment of ALL hack 
dues," because he was not obligated to 
pay graft to any muscle-men, because 
of his high personal integrity, his so- 
ciety was able to pay its debts, 
operate on a larger and more expe" 
sive scale, and still show a siz^ j 
balance at the end of the year • ' ' 
So it can be done. ^ e 
My plea is not for clean politics-

F i yiNG DUTCHMEN TRIUMPH 
qVER THE BOLL WEEVILS 

First Victory Of Season, 28-6 

The efficient Dutchmen of Lebanon Valley College, quietly, but defin- 
jy exterminated the dreaded Boll Weevil before it could perform any " 



\G0- 



SB 



w» i ■» 

the crop this season. Presenting a simple attack of spinners, 



j u ' y an d bucks, the Blue and White trampled Arkansas A. & M. to a 28-6 
t t to receive credit for its first triumph of the season. The game was 
l ' e e d under tne arc lights of the spacious Hershey Stadium before a dis- 
inting crowd of less than three thousand. 



i V had little difficulty in accom- 
>■ hing its victory. Arkansas, though 
■ted and game, was unable to stop 
f ' U ,lunging backs of our Alma Ma- 
the Unable to get started after re- 
tel - n g the kick-off, Schillo punted 
celV11 m to Arkansas territory. The 
Jtevils promptly booted back, and 
. mi took his cue, romping from his 
Snl 40 yard line to the opponents' 
°! Kuhn picked up fourteen on an 
#' tackle slant, Schillo continued the 
° ns laught, to finally drive over from 
L tW o yard stripe for the first count- 
Kuhn added the extra point with 
a perfect placement. 

Before two minutes had elapsed the 
Blue and White had tallied another 
marker Attempting a pass deep in 
their own territory, the Boll Weevils 
lost four yards even though the play 
was completed. On the very next play, 
whatever it was, Arnie Robinson, of 
Arkansas, dropped behind his goal 
line to start the play. Before he could 
do anything, Bosnyak drove in on the 
lad, and so frightened him that he 
dropped the ball, which Staley imme- 
diately assumed possession to gam 
a score. Kuhn again added the extra 
counter. 

The third score also came in the 
first period when the Weevils, living 
up to advance notices, tossed aerials 
in all directions. Unfortnuately for 
them Ed Schillo happened to inter- 
cept one on the 38 yard line, romping 
over for a third score. Kuhn again 
added a point by a placement. 

A run that was by far the best of 
the ball game was nullified by a hold- 
ing penalty. Ciamillo on a spinner 
dashed 50 yards to a score had it been 
allowed, but a Blue and White line- 
man had been caught holding. 

After the run by Ciamillo, the game 
became tiresome to watch, neither 
team being able to do much gaining, 
although the Valley had the best of 
the battle. In the final stanza, the 
toys in green and gold scored, when 
Gates grabbed a fumble to dash 82 
yards into the Blue and White pay- 
d 'rt land. 

The Dutchmen retaliated to score 
th 'usts to gain a final six pointer, 
Jjddlo diving over from the one yard 
llne - Matala added the extra point. 

Captain Bosnyak again played an 
JJtstanding game for the Blue and 
Wh ite in the line. Kuhn, Schillo, Cia- 
1T1lll o> Mickilo, and Dorazio displayed 
ple % of driving power in the back- 
Ciamillo showed lots of prom- 
as a spinner in the Valley back-

Brisk fall weather finds the girls 
engaged in various sports. If you 
wondered why certain girls were 
walking stiff-legged don't be alarm- 
ed for that is only a sign of the hock- 
ey players. Miss Henderson put them 
through a series of calisthenics last 
week to take out summer kinks. 
Judging from the groans the latter 
part of the week there must have 
been a lot of kinks. Hockey practices 
are hard to arrange because of labo- 
ratories and la:e conservatory classes, 
but for anyone who is interested, 
hockey practices are scheduled for 
Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday at 
4:30 P. M. Freshmen girls who are 
interested, even though they have 
never played, are urged to come out. 

Hockey is a comparatively new 
sport in the high school curricula. In 
order to foster hockey playing in the 
high schools, the Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege hockey team is willing to sched- 
ule hockey games with high school 
teams and will endeavor to teach 
them the technique of playing. The 
first school to take advantage of this 
offer was Myerstown, who came here 
to play last evening. 

It is still early to predict what our 
hockey team will accomplish this 
year. There are only two Seniors out 
for hockey— Mamie Kishpaugh and 
Jo Ernst. Both of these girls are 
careful, peppy players who should 
prove to be good leaders this year. 
Two freshmen Verna Stonecipher and 
Martha Wilt are expected to develop 
into good players also. However, the 
forward line needs to be speeded up 
before the team as a whole will be 
ready to face the strong opposition 
which will be put up by the Harris- 
burg Hockey Club. A game is sched- 
uled with the latter, October 19, at 
Annville. 

All positions on the team are open 
at all times for Lebanon Valley does 
not sponsor varsity competition as 
such but prefers interscholastic com- 
petition. For this reason only schools 
who follow this system are played. 

Next Tuesday afternoon Lebanon 
Valley will have a tennis meet with 
the Shippenaburg girls. Martha Wilt, 
Nicki Witmeyer, Jane Smith, Dotty 
Schindel, and Virginia Burnett will 
probably represent Lebanon Valley. 

Both Sam Stoner and Lucille Es- 
benshade had sad faces when the 
rains came and spoiled their archery 
meet.

FRANKIE KUHN 

. . . whk) successfully kicked three ex- 
tra points for L. V. C. last week. 

SPORTRAIT 

As we continue to watch our foot- 
ballers, game after game, one pigskin 
carrier stands out like a sore thumb. 
Starting every game a marked man, 
he goes in to absorb punishment and 
yet comes up ready for more. He 
isn't flashy in the sense of the climax 
runners of the modern sport, but 
rather a plugger that can be count- 
ed on to do more than his share when 
the chips are down. 

A three sport man, his presence is 
realized in whatever game he is play- 
ing. We have seen him outplay the 
famed Weems of Gettsburg on the 
basketball floor, outplay many a team 
on the baseball diamond, outclass 
many a star on the gridiron; yet he 
has asked for nothing. He gives and 
takes all as part of his job, doing 
that job most efficiently. 

Marked as a dangerous exponent of 
the passing game, he has been smear- 
ed time and time again after having 
completed his task. He has probably 
been battered as much as any line- 
man, has taken more elbows in his ribs 
than a whole team together, but he's 
still in their pitching. The roommate 
combination of last year was famed 
throughout this region, and despite all 
attempts of opponents last year, the 
attack was carried on with success. 

But have you ever heard Frankie 
Kuhn burst forth with boasts? No, 
so we are taking this opportunity to 
do it for him. A modest, unassum- 
ing, true gentleman of the modern 
pigskin game, Frank Kuhn gets our 
sincerest congratulations, and we 
hope that his reliable activity in all 
sports will continue in his last year 
at Lebanon Valley College. 



</he Spectator

Well, the Valley took its second ball 
game of the current football sched- 
ule by trampling over the drawling 
boys from Arkansas A. & M. in an 
affair that was rather listless after 
the first quarter. A rout was in or- 
der after those firs': three touchdowns 
but the Blue and White seemed con- 
tent to sit back on its heels and rest 
on the 21-0 advantage. After Gates 
pulled that Prank Merriwell stunt in 
the last quarter, the second stringers 
came to life and threatened twice, 
though scoring but once. 

Some of the Highlights of the 
game were the pass interception by Ed 
Schillo which was good for a T. D., 
the ball-carrying of Dorazio, Mikilo 
and Hoffmeister for the second outfit, 
and Ciamillo's 65-yard dash that was 
called back because of a holding pen- 



al y. Six interceptions by the L. V. 
pass defense aided the cause from 
start to finish. One resulted in a 
touchdown and the other, late in the 
game, was a potential score. 

The second-stringers capitalized on 
but one of three chances to increase 
the lead over the circus from the deep 
south. Ga es nullified the one at- 
tempt by dashing for the only score 
of the visitors on a fumble by the 
Dutchmen on the Boll Weevil 12 yard 
line. The subs pushed the ball across 
in half a dozen plays or more after 
the kickoff but failed to score again 
from the 10 where Hoffmeister 
brought the ball after intercepting 
a pass by ' Clown" Robinson on the 
Arkansas 35. 

Setbacks resulting from penalties 
again cost the Blue «& White not only 
yardage but one touchdown and an 
opportunity to ring up another. Cia- 
millo's run late in the first period was 
called back when holding was detect- 
ed and a drive by the second outfit 
was halted by a similar offense in the 
second canto. Valley drives on sever- 
al occasions were also stopped by off- 
side penalties. 

"Kid" Swope stepped into Alex 



Rakow's shoes when the scrappy lit- 
tle center was sidelined by a broken 
hand suffered in the F. & M. encoun- 
ter. Swope not only showed Frock 
that he could be depended upon in an 
emergency but showed none of the 
hysteria of many players when 
starting a game for the first time. 
Good blocking on the few plays that 
the Valley were forced to use was dup- 
licated in the several pass intercep- 
tions and the runback of punts that 
brought the 30 fans to their feet. 

This week-end brings up one of the 
things that football players dread and 
dislike most. A game has been sched- 
uled for an outfit playing under the 
name of Open Date for this Saturday. 
Despite the tendency of some teams 
to put up a miserable showing after 
an open date, the Valley grid machine 
was seen in high gear in practices 
this week and piomise of a great bat- 
tle with Moravian on th. j 18th is in- 
dicated. The Bethlehem aggregation 
has won both its games to date and 
is reputed to be the strongest team to 
represent the little church school in 
recent years. 

Franklin and Marshall, 23; Dart- 
I mouth, 21— OUCH.

"Fear is man's greatest enemy." 
And, fearing that the profs might not 
react sympathetically to the unbar- 
ing of their lighter, as well as their 
more serious moments, I progress 
with some uneasiness. Bui, nothing 
ventured, nothing gained — so here we 
go! 

In this enlightened age we are 
prone to refer to the Indian art of 
pow-wowing with derision. And yet 
we have among us a brilliant exam- 
ple of its healing powers. A popular 
y oung prof would be minus an appen- 
dage to which he has always been 
very closely attached had he not re- 
sponded favorably to aforesaid art. 
Two amis are better than one, so 
say we all — and Fritz agrees emphati- 
cally. 

Dr. Shenk, whose speeches are al- 
ways so well received, addressed Leb- 
anon's Kiwanis Club on local his- 
tory and folklore last Thursday. 
Were he to have mentioned that 
"dates are so fascinating," we won- 
der if his audience would have been 
as much amused as was one of his 
(lasses. 

Some summer news which has only 
recently been laid bare, concerns 
our eminent Prof. Campbell. Rumor 
has it that while practicing, clad in 
Keeping with the hot weather, he was 
very much embarrassed when a horde 
of prospective students came troop- 
ing in. 

To the extreme disappointment of 
his education students, Dr. Stine 
found it necessary to neglect his 
classes last Wednesday while he at- 
tended an Education Conference at 
Harrisbi^g. 

Although it seems improbable, if 
any faculty member should feel 
neglected at having been omitted, we 
humbly r pologize and assure him that 
if he MAKES the news, we'll print it!

is guaranteed to faculty members and 
students alike. Brains as well ts 
brawn are necessary for a successful 
defense program. President Roosevelt 
has advised all students to remain 
in college and not to yield to the temp- 
tation to take advantage of higher 
wages offered on Government contract 
jobs. 

Lebanon Valley College endeavors 
to exalt moral ideas and values that 
make for national defense. Again Dr. 
Lynch expressed himself by saying, 
"The French Government admits that 
intoxication was an important factor 
in defeat. Every discouragement is 
given to parctices that devitalize and 
demoralize the students, making them 
unfit for efficient service. Of course, 
no college can prevent students from 
making fools of themselves if they so 
desire, but students at Lebanon Val- 
ley College will not be allowed to for- 
get that immorality destroys human 
personality. It is not enough to know 
the light; one must be inclined to do 
it. Religion is the most potent means 
of motivating personal living in the 
di lection of promoting good will to- 
ward one's fellowmen." 

The college is also aiding national 
defense by promoting democratic 
ideas and practices on the campus. 
Here the student learns to participate 
in the larger fields of civic and gov- 
ernmental activities. Dr. Lynch stat- 
ed that so far as is known there is no 
anti-Semitic activities or sentiments 
on the campus. All students study 
and play together without the dis- 
crimination which often disintegrates 
campus societies. 

President Lynch expressed the hope 
that no student would be compelled 
to leave his studies to engage in mili- 
tary service. He said, "Should war 
come, it is hoped that we shall all 
cherish our American liberties to the 
extent that we shall be willing to 
make the supreme sacrifice, if neces- 
sary, to preserve them. There arc 
many things worse than death. To 
live under a totalitarian regime is 
more terrifying than to face the pos- 
sibility of death. The purpose of life 
is not merely to keep on living, but 
to live meaningfully. Our individual 
contribution toward the defense of the 
United States is to make life mean- 
ingful on the campus of Lebanon Val- 
ley College. Students who are well 
prepared physically, mentally, and 
spiritually are occupying the front 
ranks of national defense."

Ira winds up a week of whirlwind 
whacktivity by discovering the rea- 
son why ministers seldom remain 
long unmarried. Viz., the aspiring 
ministers make excellent wives — 
pardon — husbands due to the inten- 
sive training they receive at Bone- 
brake. Via the mails Ira has been in- 
formed that ex-ed. Carl Ehrhart, and 
cohorts Casey and Paul Horn put out 
their first wash at this progressive 
institution for theologians. Among

Civilian Pilots 
Enroll For 
1940 Course 

Five L. V. Men Train In 
First Semester Class 

This year at Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege the Civilian Pilot Training 
Course is scheduled to be given each 
semester, replacing last year's pro- 
cedure of prolonging the course 
throughout the school year. Ten per- 
sons have enrolled thus far in the fall 
unit of the course. Only five of these 
individuals, however, are students at 
L. V. C. These students and the num- 
ber of flying hours already to their 
credit as of last Monday are Donald 
Bartley, 3 J hours; George Bryce, 3* 
hours; Joseph Gittlen, li hours; Rob- 
ert Rapp, 3 hours; and Richard Zent- 
meyer, 2 hours. 

Classes are conducted by Professor 
Grimm every Monday, Tuesday, and 
Wednesday evening in the Adminis- 
tration Building. Instruction is given 
in meteorology, navigation, and air- 
craft operation. The course requires 
six hours of classwork a week for 
twelve weeks, or seventy-two hours 
in all. After having completed the 
required preliminary study, ground 
and flight work, and successfully 
passed the rigid examination of the 
government inspector, the students 
will be awarded licenses as private pi- 
lots. 



Girls Decide OnDate 
For Open House 

Open House will be observed in the

invited to visit the dorms at this time. 




SAMUEL DERICK 

A newly organized staff of six L. 
V. cheer-leaders will appear for the 
first time at the pre-Moravian pep 
meeting on Friday, October 18. With 
Samuel Derick as head of the group 
there will be Jean Garland, Bettie 
Focht, Martha Yeakle Robert Weiler, 
and Frank Shenk to lead the cheers 
of the student boosters. 

Lebanon Valley will have these 
leaders at all the games in the new 
royal blue and white outfits. The three 
women are to be attired in royal 
blue sweaters with the white "L's", 
white skirts, and knee-high blue socks, 
while the three men will sport sweat- 
ers with a white background for the 
blue "L", and dark trousers. 

Megaphones have been made a 
part of the cheer-leading equipment. 
For the men there will be large blue 
ones but smaller white ones for the 
othed three will likewise be marked 
by an "L" of the contrasting color. 



La Vie To

Straw Vote To Test 
L. V. Sentiment 

The LA VIE COLLEGIENNE will 
conduct a poll during the chapel pe- 
riod on Friday morning to determine 
whether student opinion is for Frank- 
lin D. Roosevelt or Wendell Willkie 
as the next United States president. 

Upon entering Engle Hall each stu- 
dent will receive a ballot on which 
he is asked to vote for one of the can 
didates. These will be collected as the 
students leave chapel. Results of the 
voting will be published in the next 
issue of this paper in order that they 
may be compared with those of this 
district and the nation in the coming- 
election. 



Learning, Agent Of 
World Friendship 
Visits On Campus 

Mr. Vaughn Learning, former rep- 
resentative of the World Friendship 
Project in Africa, visited L. V.'s cam- 
pus yesterday. Mr. Learning returned 
to this country last spring after hav- 
ing taught for two years at Albert 
Academy, Sierra Leone, West Africa, 
as an ambassador of all United Breth 
ren Colleges and Bonebrake Theologi 
cal Seminary. At present he is con- 
tinuing his work as a senior at York

''Reading makdth a full man" 

Students at Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege are frequently heard complaining 
about the lack of physical equipment 
and resources, dwelling so heavily 
upon the disadvantages of the school 
that they entirely overlook the out- 
standing opportunities which present 
themselves on every hand. It is mere- 
ly another case of starving in the 
midst of plenty. 

Characteristic of this attitude is 
the use, or rather the misuse and 
disuse, of the library. To eulogize the 
value of abstract study, to praise 
the resources of our library would be 
at this time commendable, but super- 
fluous in view of several urgent 
practicalities. Every self-respecting 
college student should be constantly 
on the que vive to strengthen his 
grasp and enlarge his understanding 
of the alarming international situa- 
tion. But while our self -centered stud- 
ent body closes its smug mind with 
rash intrepidity to the world as it 
progresses outside the borders of the 
campus, the periodicals in the li- 
brary are yellowed and unread. Col- 
lege is preparation for an active 
citizenship, yet through our own 
sloth we a. low ourselves, as graduates, 
to be cast upon a teeming world 
clad only in our collegiate naivete. 

Students have been known to boast 
the few times they have entered the 
library. Others flaunt their ignorance 
of current affairs. Both attitudes 
have always been infantile; today 
they approximate a dangerous men- 
ace. A few well-spent minutes in the 
periodical room should be an integral 
part of our college day. There, with 
the aid of the best magazine and news- 
paper in America, we can keep in step 
with the vital problems of our country. 
The intellectual mode of life can no 
longer afford to be monastic; the day 
of yellow slicker and rah-rah is past. 
Let us put away childish things, make 
use of our opportunities, be accurate- 
ly informed.

jazz notes 

by Maurie Erdman 

A fast rising band takes the reviewing stand this week under the tal- 
ented baton of a handsome young giant, Vaughn Monroe. 

Composed of five brass, four reed and four rhythm, his band swings 
with a light free style, but still has enough get-up-and-ride to pack a wal- 
lop. His build-ups are like T. D.'s while the endings revert to the Dipsey 
Doodler's stuff. Using little vibrato, his sax section might be compared 
to the flat iron tone of the reeds in Goodman's set-up back in '35. Both 
brass and rhythm do a swell job on sweet, straight swing and dixieland. 

Outstanding is the style used in backing up a vocalist or side man. 
This is undoubtedly the best you're likely to hear for some time. We get 
mighty tired of hearing four or five reeds or a couple muted brasses back- 
grounding. This group shows originality plus along this line. On a recent 
fifteen minute broadcast he used one clarinet and a muted trumpet, chang- 
ing later to a clarinet duet. On the next piece, three muted trumpets and 
two clarinets provided the touch of a master. The effect added a novel 
phase to each piece which is something even the really big boys can't 
brag. 

The blonde young man behind the baton does the vocalizing in a bari- 
tone voice that does justice to his profile. The clear tone of his voice is 
also pleasantly different. 

On "What Noise Annoys An Oyster" Monroe puts in a Marie cycle 
background with tricky words. Icthy Bibble is imitated admirably. 

Vaughn may be heard Tuesday at 10:15 P. M. on WJZ playing from 
the Penn A. C, in Whelan, Mass. Stand back there son — this band is going 
places! 



Stage Whispers 

The dramatic season is now in full swing on our campus. On Monday 
night the opening rehearsals of both the Home-Coming play and the Wig 
and Buckle play were held. 

The Home-Coming Play which has been selected is "The Bronze Lady 
and the Crystal Gentleman." The scene of the play is laid in a French hos- 
pital for the insane. Monsieur Sourcier, an inmate, has allowed himself to 
be locked up in order to escape his nagging wife. But Madame Sourcier, 
whatever her faults may be, loves her husband, and that's where the trouble 
begins. The situations involved in this play are certainly extraordinary 
enough to appeal to the football-loving, out-for-a-good-time crowd that is 
usually present at this play. 

"The Importance of Being Earnest," besides starring a cast of our 
local veteran actors can boast of a young actress who was a member of a 
summer theatre this summer. Jane Baker, the freshman who is playing 
the role of Gwendolyn, had the feminine lead in "Death Takes a Holiday." 
So keep your eye on Janie; we predict great things for her here at L. V. C. 

And now a word or so about the one-act play tournament which is to 
be held under the sponsorship of the Wig and Buckle Club. The order of 
presentation is to be patterned after that of the triple feature play of Noel 
Coward, "Tonight at 8:30." There will be a series of three plays, each di- 
rected by a senior member of the Wig and Buckle Club and the cast of 
which will be selected from the freshman, sophomore, and junior classes. 
The student director will be responsible for scenery, lighting, make-up, and 
even casting. There are quite a few one-act non-royalty plays in the col- 
lege library, or, if you have literary aspirations, you may write your own 
play. However, original plays are subject to criticism by the secretary 
of the club. The most popular play will probably be presented in sur- 
rounding communities under its student director and with its original cast. 
So, come on, seniors, get busy and hand your name in to Martha Jane 
Koontz so that she will know that you are interested in this tournament. 



JJn dimes %?ast

There is something about the past 
which is fascinating and strangely 
interesting. The old copies of LA 
VIE stored away on the second floor 
of the library are full of articles — 
news, nonsense, or indifferent — 
which startle, amaze, intrigue, charm, 
amuse and sometimes disgust or an- 
noy the reader. One is surprised to 
see such a vast wealth of material in 
a small college paper. 

Turning back the years with a mere 
flip of the pages we find ourselves 
confronted with the Oct. 16, 1930 is- 
sue of LA VIE — a decade ago. The 
headline which immediately com- 
mands our attention is the one ex- 
tending across the top of the front 
page. It announces L. V.'s first foot- 
ball victory of the season — Lebanon 
Valley Defeats Muhlenberg, 14-12. 

Another headline attracts our at- 
tention — Bonfire Ignited by Ruffians. 
It seems one poor Frosh fellow took 
a little rough treatment that night 
when the football victory was to be 
celebrated a la bonfire. He was at- 
tacked while guarding the precious 
pile of combustible material, was tied 
and placed in a nearby orchard until 
the incendiary accomplished his work. 
What! Only one Frosh en gard! They 
must have thought him to be a Her- 
cules ! ! 

* * * 

Well, and at length we come to that 
"Dawg Gawn" humor column bearing 
the caption — "A College Joke To Cure 
the Blues" — Jonathan Swift. Let's 
put one of them to the test to see if 
it will tickle our funny bones— 

I've seen a house sans chimney, 

— A ship without a sail, 

But the coldest thing in winter, 

Is a shirt without a tail! 



The Highwayers 

by Alf Noise 

When Mary Ellen Homan lost the 
key to her car door, she did not pause 
to weep or even curse, but pulled up 
the trunk lid in the rear, climbed in 
the compartment, and with a little 
persuasion forced the rear seat to 
move and leave an opening through 
which the lass squeezed inside. Now 
this is easier said than done, but you 
should have seen the contortions in- 
volved in this novel operation for real 
appreciation. 

Co-education gets the strongest of 
the "anti-fems." Bob Reiff, a chemist 
from head to toe, was observed carry- 
ing a text book with a book jacket 
that prompted investigation. Why 
should a picture of a pretty girl 
adorn a "chem" text? "It is a label 
to let me know that it is Organic 
'Chem' and not one of the others." 
I suppose he calls them C 12 H 22 D 11 
instead of "sugar." 

Dr. Bender's theme song should be 
"Bring Back, Bring Back, My Defen- 
derfer to Me." Bill Defenderfer (ser- 
geant) cleaned house in the stock 
room, before he was called to service 
in the P. N. G., and now the poor 
prof has to search among the shelves 
for what he wants, because the other 
assistants are in the same boat. 

Loy Ebersole has returned to the 
campus after a year's absence; and 
from the way things look, a year 
away from the campus did not crush 
that glow in Audrie's heart. It must 
be love, because the campus competi- 
tion is always keen. 

We have heard down Lebanon way, 
that "Hone" Light, had so many boy 
friends at L. H. S. that to date them 
all at once would require a bus for 
transportation. Now may -be we are 
very unobservant, but what has hap- 
pened at L. V. C.?— they just won't 
flock. 

There is the story of the high- 
wayer who was traveling through

Roddie boy, Ira and his motley cre 
are with you. 

Next in line for our vote are th 
editorial policy of La Vie on conscrb 
tion (did YOU read it?), the e n er " 
getic way in which fencing classes fo r 
both men and gals are being conduct- 
ed, the informal tone (the former 
supoena-like wording i s no longer) 
of the invitations issued by the Ji gger 
Board to frosh miscreants. 

Sizing up the week-end, Ira heart 
iiy approves Yonnaccone's rendition 
of DARK EYES, Al's trio arrange- 
ments and the gals' chirping, skating 
parties, the stalwart attempts of our 
embryo orchestra, and the startling 
combination of Prutzman and Gock- 
ley. 

THUMBS DOWN: On dampening 
our hard-got enthusiasm at pep meet- 
ings by winding up with four long 
DIRGE-LIKE verses of the almy 
mammy. We go for it, but only on 
occasions. Ditto on the yump-up- 
and-down procedure of the new chap- 
el — but that way madness lies. More 
frowns for the frosh fellows who are 
flagrantly breaking rules and for 
those in high places who are condon- 
ing it. 

Still panting with admiration for 
the persuasive powers of Tippy, who 
convinced the Females' Straight and 
Narrow Society that she was not 
sneak-dating with Dick Phillips on 
Sunday last, Ira was simply convulsed 
when he heard the ired accused ap-

• t f victims. The Greyhounds open- 
d their season by handing the Al-

its power, Moravian defeated 
Brooklyn College, 15-0, and last week 
ran 0V er Blue Ridge, 14-6. In defeat- 
ing Blue Ridge, Moravian piled up 
15 first downs to 1 for Blue Ridge. 

The Valley on the other hand has 
a 500 average. Battling the undefeat- 
ed Diplomats of F. and M. in the 
season's opener, L. V. was humiliat- 
ingly humbled, 21-0. The next week 
however, they showed more finesse, 
as they tumbled Arkansas A. and M. 
28-6. 

This year will mark the third in 
which Lebanon Valley has gone into 
the enemy's pounds. The first year 
resulted in a 9-6 victory for the 
Dutchman, the tallies being chalked 
up by Sammy Vaughn on a three 
yard, plunge and a safety effected by 
Bcsnyak. Last year Grabusky caught 
a pass to cope for a score and give 
the Valley a 6-0 victory. 

Moravian is determined to break 
the Valley's jinx, while the Blue and 
White are equally determined to end 
the Greyhound streak of three 
straight.

FIGHTER 




ALEX RAKOW 

. . . who occupied the sidelines in the 
last game because of injuries. 

SPORTRAIT 

The individual reviewed this week 
is perhaps the best of the little men 
that have ever donned a uniform for 
the Blue and White in its gridiron his- 
tory. What superiority Alex Rakow 
gives way to opponents in the mat- 
ter of height and weight he makes up 
in fight — 178 pounds of fight. A more 
aggressive and determined player 
could not be found on the squad in the 
past four years. 

Having played varsity ball for a 
nearby high school in the guard and 
center positions, Rakow came to Leb- 
anon Valley three years ago and was 
promptly designated as a candidate 
for the center post by Coach Frock. 
Having the misfortune to play for 
three years the role of an understudy 
of Charley Belmer who had firmly 
installed himself in the center slot, 
Alex kept battling and proved him- 
self a capable resei'vist for the cap- 
tain of last year's eleven. 

His cool and heady play has won 
him the respect of many an opponent 
and his dogged resistance and con- 
stant chatter in the face of adversity 
has inspired his team-mates upon nu- 
merous occasions. Not a flashy ball 
player, Rakow is known for his con- 
sistent play both on offense and de- 
fense. In many a game you might 
see him throwing beautiful blocks 
downfield after completing his as- 
signment along the line. Then, too, 
many spectators have marvelled at 
his steady and hard tackling play 
from the backer-up position. 

A little man always has his injur- 
ies but very seldom do we hear about 
them and Alex is no exception to the 
rule. Winning his spurs as starting 
center this year, he was obliged to 
play with a broken hand received 
early in the F. & M. game and was 
forced to the sidelines for the second 
contest of the season. However, Ra- 
kow has been working out with the 
squad and expects to be back in the 
line-up Friday evening for the all- 
important encounter with Moravian. 

We, fellow students and team-mates 
of the courageous little athlete, sa- 
lute a gallant fighter— Alex Rakow.

fJhe Spectator 
by joe 



Last week-end was an open date for 
our Blue and White cohorts, who are 
now tuning up for that race with the 
Greyhounds from Moravian on Fri- 
day night. 

Maybe you haven't noticed it, but 
there is an evident spirit of determ- 
ination and enthusiasm among the 
ranks of the Dutchmen. It would be 
sweet to break that three game win- 
ning streak of Moravian. 

Feeling a bit ambitious, we ambled 
out to the "Corn Bowl" to watch our 
lads go through their paces. One 
thing we did notice was a possible 
change in the Blue and White line- 
up. Coach Frock is determined to 
make use of the hard running of some 
of his freshman backs. 

Then, too, we watched Ed Schillo 
kicking and passing the sphere as he 
hasn't done in many a moon. Ed, 
who is as good as the best, has been 
bothered by injuries all season, but 
he has the s'.uff to stay in there and 
pitch. 

An amusing sidelight on the cam- 
pus sports is the attempted tussle be- 
tween the first floor of the Men's 
Dorm and the Day Students. It fail- 
ed to materialize because the band 
utilized the playing arena for its dril- 
ling activities. It's a shame to deprive 
the boys of their sport, but then the 
band must practice too. 

The fencers have taken to their 
sport quite seriously and are con- 
scientiously rehearsing every night 
in the gym. Maurie Erdman is quite 
enthused over the progress made. We 
ought to extend to him a vote of 
thanks for initiating the sport on 
the campus. 

Continuing our tour, we notice the 
archers, and there's a goodly number 
of them, fitting an arrow onto the 
string, getting set, and letting the 
thing fly in the general direction of 
the target, quickly praying that it f 
hits the target. If they miss they 
have to walk further to gather their 
arrows. 

In passing we want to make a pre- 
diction. The Greyhounds are favored 
over the Dutchmen, so don't be sur- 
prised if there's an upset in the sport 
world.

A big bouquet of orchids to Sam 
Derick for his efforts in organizing 
a pep-squad. In order to promote big- 
ger and better pep meetings and to 
give unified support to our teams a 
cheer-leading squad consisting of 
Sam Derick, Margaret Boyd, Frank 
Shenk, Bob Weiler, Jane Garland, 
Bettie Focht, and Martha Yeakle has 
been organized. It is hoped that this 
will lead to the evincing of a better, 
more lively spirit on the part of the 
student body instead of the former 
apathy displayed by them. After all, 
a team is better able to carry on when 
they are shown by cheering that 
someone is behind them — don't take 
my word, ask the boys who know. 

On Saturday, those of you who 
have never seen a hockey game need 
remain in ignorance no longer, for on 
that day the Harrisburg Hockey Club 
will be the guests of the Lebanon 
Valley team. The Harrisburg Club 
is made up of girls who are inter- 
ested in playing hockey because they 
like the game. Most of them played 
hockey in college and are still inter- 
ested enough to continue. They are 
well known on this campus as excel- 
lent hockey players who display 
beautiful stick work. Lebanon Val- 
ley will face them having had a min- 
imum amount of practice and with- 
out the playing of dependable Jane 
Stabley. Put this game on your must 
list. 

Last Tuesday, the L. V. girls ten- 
nis team consisting of Dottie Schin- 
del, Martha Wilt, Nicky Witmeyer, 
Jane Smith, and Ginny Burnhard 
came through in typical Dutchman 
style in their match with Shippens- 
berg. The coldness of the day pre- 
vented them from playing a full 
match, but the match was won 4-1. 
Rackets will have to be put away un- 
til the spring, but judging from this 
performance the L. V. tennis team 
ought to be quite successful in their 
spring matches.

LA VIE COLLEGIENNE, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 17, 1940 



Berkshire Boost 
Music Center 

(Continued from Last Week) 
by Ella Moyer 

In fulfillment of a long-cherished 
dream of Dr. Serge Koussevitzky the 
Berkshire Music Center was opened 
last summer in the Berkshire hills be- 
tween Lenox and Stockbridge. At the 
summer home of the Boston Sym- 
phony Orchestra the Center offers 
special opportunities to all for the 
practice and contemplation of music, 
in its noblest aspects. It brings them 
into association with the leading 
artists and scholars of the day. 
Tanglewood is a place for those who 
wish to refresh mind and personality 
by the* experience of the best in 
music and the related arts, and who 
long for a creative rest in the sum- 
mer. 

It is not routine music study or 
the development of individual vir- 
tuosity which the Berkshire Music 
Center endeavors to develop. The 
work of the Center is divided into 
two parts : the Institute for Advanced 
Study, for those who have had the 
essential technical training and who 
are studying to make music their 
career; and the Academy, for those 
of less specific qualifications who wish 
to increase their acquaintance with 
music and its interpretation. All mem- 
bers of the Center participate in the 
student orchestras, choruses, chamber 
music, or operatic groups, acquiring 
a direct understanding of music as it 
is written, conducted, played, or sung. 
In the upper school, Dr. Koussevitzky 
takes four pupils to whom he gives 
individual training in conducting, 
while others in the class listen and 
observe. Review work in musical the- 
ory is available, and composition in 
advance as well as more elementary 
forms is taught by Paul Hindermuth 
and Aaron Copeland. There are not 
only special classes in conducting, but 
also rehearsals and performances ot 
an orchestra of selected players who 
combine forces with their instructors, 
nrst desk men of the Boston Sym- 
phony, in the practice of finished sym- 
phonic interpretation. One of the 
methods followed in the classes is for 
the student to play a first part in an 
ensemble and the musician who in- 
structs him a second. There is much 
ensemble performance, under skilled 
guidance, by small groups according 
to their capabilities in performance. 
In the same way the practice of 
choral singing and conducting, di- 
rected by G. Wallace Woodworth of 
Harvard. This training preceded the 
performance in combination with the 
Boston Symphony Orchestra of Bach's 
B Minor Mass which was a special 
feature of the Symphonic Festival. 
Those who study music at the Music 
Center will also play it. Those who 
play it will study it, which does not 
always follow for these two things 
are not necessarily synonymous. 

There were four orchestras at the 
Center, the Boston Symphony itself, 
the Institute Orchestra, the Academy 
Orchestra, and the Chamber Orches- 
tra. The Boston Symphony gave a 
series of three concerts a week for 
three weeks, with outstanding solo- 
ists among them being Gregor Piati- 
gorsky, Albert Spalding, Dorothy 
Maynor, Jesus Maria Sanroma to- 
gether with the solists of the Mass, 
Elizabeth Schumann, soprano; Viola 
Silva, mezzo-soprano; William Hain, 
tenor; and Alexander Kipnis, bass. 

Rehearsals of the Boston Sym- 
phony Orchestra were held every 
morning from 9:30 to 12:30 for the 
three weeks, and it was the rare priv- 
ilege of the writer to have attended 
every one of them. The Saturday 
rehearsals were opened to invited 
guests with a talk during intermission 
by Olin Downes. 

The faculty represented outstand- 
ing names in the music world. 

Dr. Serge Koussevitzky, first desk- 



man and assistant conductor of the 
Boston Symphony Orchestra. 

Richard Burgin, first desk-man and 
assistant conductor of the Boston 
Symphony Orchestra. 

Aaron Copland, composer and auth- 
or. 

Olin Downes, music editor of the 
New York Times. 

Herbert Graf, stage director of the 
Metroplia Company, New York. 
Paul Hindemith, composer. 
G. Wallace Woodworth, chairman of 
the Department of Music, Harvard 
University. 

Stanley Chappie, assistant to Dr. 
Koussevitzky, conductor and lecturer. 

Boris Goldowsky, Head of the 
Opera Department, Cleveland Insti- 
tute of Music. 

Malcolm Holms, Conductor of the 
Harvard, Radcliffe, and Wellesley Col- 
lege Orchestras. 

Abram Chasins, composer, pianist, 
and lecturer. 

Archibald Davison, Professor of 
Choral Music, Harvard University. 

Randall Thompson, Director of the 
Curtis Institute of Music, and others. 

The Center as it develops will ex- 
pand the scope of its activities. The 
Rockerf ellor Foundation gave the Cen- 
ter $60,000 which was used to build 
the- first unit of the theatre, an organ, 
and a number of scholarships. A few 
weeks ago the philanthropic and 
music-loving Mrs. Mary Bok (founder 
of the Curtis School) sent her check 
for $10,000 to Dr. Koussevitzky to be 
used for the enlargement of the thea- 
tre, for the classes in dramatic mus- 
ical interpretation, the study of clas- 
sic drama, development of the ballet 
and related subjects. Of course, this 
brings up the old agitation, which 
was much discussed this summer for 
an American Salzburg. There are 
very few musical bases in the Old 
World at present and by the time the 
European nations get through bomb- 
ing each other it is safe to assume 
that there will be none left. The 
xierkshires are no Alps; Mozart was- 
n't born there; nor did Wagner bless 
it with his art and residence. But ah 
the same, Lenox and Stockbridge is 
nandsome enough ground, the summer 
customers are plentiful, accomoda- 
tions for outsiders adequate, and the 
distance from New iork is reason- 
able. The American hot-dog may not 
sound as romantic as the Viennese 
"broetchen" and the "wuerstohen,' 
but it will do for intermission refresh- 
ment. The duplication of the native 
costumes which foreigners in Salz- 
burg wore and contributed so much 
color to the Festival may be difficult 
to imagine in the vicinity of Lennox 
and Stockbridge, but with our Amer- 
ican designers on the job, anything 
can happen. It looks as if the Amer- 
ican Salzburg, so far only the Amer- 
ican dream may become a reality be- 
fore we know it. 

The one element governing the 
complete success of any outdoor 
event is the weather. This year it 
was almost 100%. The audience of 
70,000 attended the 9 concerts of the 
Festival and if we include those at 
tended the 3 Saturday morning re 
hearsals of the Orchestra, the num- 
ber is swelled to 80,000 and if we 
further include the attendance at the 
huge Allied Relief Fund Entertain 
ment on August 16th we hjave i 
grand total of 88,000 persons who 
passed through the admission gates 
to Tanglewood. This program con- 
tent of the 9 concerts this summer 
maintained the traditional high stand 
ard of the mid-winter season of this 
Orchestra in Boston. There were no 
first performances to interest the hab 
itual concert goer, but there was a 
variety in the choice of composers 
which established an international 
atmosphere, from the very beginning 
of the Festival, and catered not only 
to those who hear fine orchestral 
music almost every week during the 
winter, but also to those to whom 



such programs are rare experiences. 

Commemorating the 100th anniver- 
sary of Tschaikowsky's birth, Dr. 
Koussevitzky offered series B of the 
Festival as a succession of Tschai- 
kowsky — Beethoven programs. The 
presence of Paul Hindemith, lent ad- 
ditional interest to the performance 
of his "Mathis de Maler," as did 
also the presence of Roy Hain's to 
the performance of his third sym- 
phony. 

There were many distinguished 
guests from all walks of life attend- 
ing the festival. Some of the out- 
standing being, Arturo Toscannini, 
Governor Lehman of New York, 
Dorothy Thompson, Lucrezia Bori, 
Lowell Thomas, Bette Davis, Tal- 
lulah Bankhead, Mrs. Roosevelt, Mrs. 
Woodrow Wilson, Artur Rodzinski, 
and others. With memories of the In- 
carnation and Crucifixus of the Bach 
B Minor Mass, the Hindemith Mathis 
der Maler, the Beethoven trio and 
many others is an experience so rich, 
intense and perfect which exists at 
Tanglewood under its great leader Dr. 
Koussevitzky, that it is truly an ex- 
perience which can only be described 
as literally "living and working in 
music." 



Women Students 
Entertain Dean 
On Birthday 

Miss Gillespie, Dean of Women, cel- 
ebrated her birthday with all the wo- 
men dormitory students on Wednes- 
day, October 16, at a party in North 
Hall parlor. When entering the group 
called together for a North Hall house 
meeting, she was surprised to find the 
group present to join in a party in 
her honor. 

As entertainment, musical numbers 
were supplied by members of each of 
the dormitories. From South Hall 
Evelyn Ling played a clarinet solo, 
while West Hall presented a piano 
solo by Hazel Fornoff. The trio com- 
posed of Margaret Bordwell, Jessie 
Robertson, and Jo Hammond repre- 
sented North Hall. 

The dormitory girls presented Miss 
Gillespie with a birthday remem- 
brance, a fountain pen. Party refresh- 
ments of cake and ice-cream complet- 
ed the night's festivities.

Kullman Appears At 
Lebanon, Nov. 1 

TENOR IS FIRST ARTIST 
IN CONCERT SERIES 

Charles Kullman, sensational Am- 
erican tenor of opera, concert stage, 
radio, and screen, will make his ap- 
pearance in the Lebanon Senior High 
School Auditorium Friday, November 
1, at 8:15 p.m., as the first guest 
artist of the Lebanon Community 
Concert Association. 

Born in New Haven in 1903, Mr. 
Kullman was graduated from Yale, 
where his experiences with the glee 
club persuaded him to abandon 
his planned medical career for sing- 
ing. 

After studying and appearing in 
opera houses both here and abroad, 
Kullman made his Metropolitan debut 
six years ago in "Faust." Since then 
he has acquired the reputation of hav- 
ing sung more tenor roles there than 
anyone else, with a total of 31 to his 
credit for the 1939-40 season.

Willkie Is 
Campus Choice 

Vote Agrees With 
Other Campuses 

WILLKIE vs. ROOSEVELT 
The mock presidential election con- 
ducted by LA VIE COLLEGIENNE 
in chapel on Friday, October 18, 
shows the campus to be strongly pro- 
Willkie as the Republican candidate 
decisively defeated Roosevelt by a vote 
201-89. 

While this poll is far from a reli- 
able index of November's results, it 
is indicative not only of eastern col- 
lege opinions, but of a definite trend 
away from Mr. Roosevelt. There are 
many reasons why Mr. Willkie would 
appeal to Lebanon Valley students. 
His appeal to Lebanon Valley seems 
to resolve itself into three main di- 
visions. In the first place the major- 
ity of the students are sons and 
daughters of small business men and 
well-to-do farmers whose home life 
has been one of Republicanism or, at 
least, Anti-New-Dealism. Secondly, 
the non-partisan education received at 
this institution has led many to con- 
clude that Mr. Roosevelt's policies are 
faulty. For examples, political science 
teaches that Washington, Jefferson, 
Jackson, and Wilson were opposed 
to a third term, while economics 
points out that the New Deal has 
disregarded every sound economic 
theory. Thirdly, the general concen- 
sus, of student opinion is that the ad- 
ministration's re-armament program, 
if not a failure, is at least, inefficient 
and ineffective in its attempts to meet 
the needs of the nation. Although ap- 
propriations for sorely needed equip- 
ment such as anti-aircraft guns and 
ammunition, fighter, observation and 
bombing planes, are all available, to 
date the president has made no ac- 
tive step to place them in industry's 
hands. Our navy is still unprepared 
to defend one shore, much less two. 
The men students in particular are 
ardent in their belief that Willkie's 
previous business and executive rec- 
ord prove him to be the man to live 
on Pennsylvania Avenue during the 
next four years.

FOR DEFENSE PROGRAM 

On Registration Day, October 14, 
1940, sixty-five students of Lebanon 
Valley College registered for conscrip- 
tion. The registration was conducted 
in the Dean's Office of the Adminis- 
tration Building from seven o'clock in 
the morning until nine o'clock in the 
evening. J. W. Esbenshade was ap- 
pointed Chief Registrar and Profes- 
sors Grimm and Shenk assisted him. 



ned program will take up every mo- 
ment of the time until the conclusion 
of the Annual "L" Club Dance, Sat- 
urday evening, when the eventful day 
will be brought to a close. 

The traditional Freshman-Soph- 
more Tug-of-War on the banks of the 
"Quittie" will supply plenty of laughs. 
Each must cheer his choice on to vic- 
tory — or into the "Quittie." 

All alumni are invited to be the 
guests of the college at the Annual 
Homecoming Luncheon in the College 
dining hall at 12:00 noon. The meals 
are still as good as they always were 
—and after all it's free! 

Members of the Board of Trustees 
will gather in the Administration 
Building, at 10:00 a.m. Coach Esther 
Henderson's Hockey squad will match 
strides and strokes with the Shippens- 
burg State Teachers College team on 
the girls' athletic field at 10:30 a.m. 

Coach "Jerry" Frock's "Flying 
Dutchmen" will play host to Coach 
Pauxtis and his P. M. C. "Cadets" on 
the new Lebanon High School Stad- 
ium, Seventh and Church Streets, at 
2:00 p.m. A section will be reserved 
for alumni in the concrete stands 
along the Seventh Street side of the 
field. The admission price is only 
$.75. 

Professor Rutledge plans to enter- 
tain the alumni and guests with a 
very colorful band demonstration be- 
tween the halves of the game. The 
crack boys' band that has won the 
plaudits of football crowds at each 
game this season will be on hand and 
they really have what it takes to 
make you proud that you are a part 
of Lebanon Valley College. The girls' 
band, a real musical organization, will 
make its initial appearance of the 
year at the homecoming game. 

After the game supper will be 
served in the college dining hall. The 
Wig and Buckle Club will entertain 
Alumni and students with a very 
clever one act play "The Bronze 
Lady and the Crystal Gentleman" in 
Engle Hall, at 7:00 p.m. The Annual 
"L" Club Dance will bring the events 
of the day to a fitting close. 



Congenial Spirit Shown By Mr. Learning 



by Robert Mays 



Last week the students of Leb- 
anon Valley College acted as hosts 
to Mr. Vaughn Learning, a senior 
at York College, York, Nebraska, and 
a former representative of the World 
Friendship Project in Africa. Mr. 
Learning not only proved himself a 
very capable speaker, but radiated 
good will by the power of his genial 
personality. In the course of his stay 
here, he addressed a combined meet- 
ing of the Y. W. C. A., Y. M. C. A., 
and Life Work Recruits, spoke briefly 
at a fellowship supper conducted by 
these groups, presented a message at 
the student prayer meeting, and ad- 
dressed the student body and faculty 
in Chapel service. 



Mr. Learning stated that the ob- 
ject of his visit was to stimulate in- 
terest in the mission work at Free- 
town, West Africa. He left the cam- 
pus to attend a general missionary 
convention held at Lancaster. 

When asked if he intended to con- 
tinue his work in the mission field, 
Mr. Learning said that it was his 
intention to complete his college 
course at York and then to go to 
Bonebrake Theological Seminary in 
Dayton, Ohio. He declared that he 
was willing to enter into whatever 
field may open for him within the 
United Brethren Church. 

Several students were interested in

welcome 

La Vie Collegienne wishes to ex- 
press a hearty welcome to all former 
Dutchmen who are visiting the cam- 
pus this week-end. May all the old 
grads feel as much at home on campus 
now, as they did in years past when 
they played the role of entertainers, 
instead of that of guests.

The morale, e. piit de corps, or what 
ever you wish to call it, of the Leba- 
non Valley football team has fallen 
to the lowest level in recent years. 
Merely flashes of the fire and fight 
that is needed to win ball games was 
seen in the three games played thus 
far. From the sidelines we are un- 
able to determine what the trouble is, 
but one thing is certain. If our boys 
fail to pull themselves out of the rut 
into which they have fallen it will 
be very, very ditiicult to win any 
more ball games this season. 

Think back, if you will, to the 
teams that represented Lebanon Val- 
ley on the football field in the past 
season or two. Recall, if you will, the 
indomitable courage of men like Chris 
Walk, Sammy Vaughn, Stan Bulota, 
and Gordon Davies in the face of ad- 
versity. These players fought back 
despite the fact that their opponents 
were in the lead. But our team has 
failed to even get the jump on the 
opposition thus far in the season. It 
means a great deal to a team to drive 
the other ball club back on its heels 
at the start of the game. Our boys 
have failed to show any sort of spirit 
even at the beginning of the first 
quarter. 

Our team is lacking in only one 
respect, the elements that go together 
to bring success to any organization. 
We have leadership and organization, 
but no morale, no spiirt of determin- 
ation. Fred Bosnyak is as able a lead- 
er as any team might hope to have 
and Coach Frock is as highly re- 
spected as any coach in the section 
of the country. But these two men 
cannot win a ball game alone. We 
have the material to produce a win- 
ning team, but without the other es- 
sentials we are lost. 

Boys, in the game this week, and in 
the games to come, let us get in there 
and fight as we know how. Let us 
show the opposition that we will not 
buckle when the game begins to go 
against us. Let us whip ourselves 
together as an organization that will 
not be stopped. Let us renew the 
faith that has been placed in us by 
our staunchest supporters. Let us 
show some real fighting spirit.

Divertissements 

by Althea Prudence 

Our friend, Ira, yearning for a va- 
cation and peace of mind, has induced 
yours truly to assume the duties of 
acquainting you, the public, with the 
patter of our fair campus for an in- 
definite time, so — here goes! Allow 
me to say here and now that names 
and incidents mentioned herein are 
not entirely fictitious and any simi- 
larity to persons living or otherwise 
is probably recognizable. 



We cannot, must not, and shall not 
fail to throw bouquets to Philo and 
Delphian for their delightful little 
cruise on the good ship HIGH TIME 
Saturday evening. Our only regrets 
were for the brevity of the cruise. 
May we have more of them — And 
may the fosterers of the terpsichor- 
ean art on the L. V. boards sit up and 
take notice of what can be done to a 
Sailors' Hornpipe, especially by one, 
(may we steal the thunder of our 
worthy colleagues, the day students ? ) 
Bob Nicholls. 



While we're on the subject, it was 
interesting to note the direction of 
Kuhnie's wandering eyes when the 
lad was stuck on the sidelines with a 
life preserver in his hands just wait- 
ing the opportunity to rescue some 
fair damsel from the sea of dancers. 
Need we mention any names for the 
public's benefit, Jo? 



Our compliments to Vicki for her 
valiant and quite effective efforts in 
the realm of swing in spite of her re- 
monstrances — "I've never felt so de- 
graded in my life!" The public seem- 
ed to like it — so chin up, lady! 



The feminine element must needs 
gasp with concern at a heart so cool 
as to leave a lovely "chrysanthabum- 
bum" wilting for four hours with no 
efforts at resuscitation. And Bob 
thought it was such a lovely senti- 
ment, too! 



We must take this opportunity to 
bid a fond welcome to our Alumni 
friends and to wish them a pleasant 
week-end with their memories. 



One of the profs told a certain 
South Hall lassie that she wouldn't 
make a good teacher because she was

Don't say we didn't warn you if 
that gentleman, popularly known on 
campus as Chris, should assume, vol- 
untarily or otherwise, the nickname 
Grandpappy. And if he feels the urge 
to pass out the traditional cigars, we 
do wish he'd make them chocolate. 

Getting an early start on his most 
commendable campaign, Mr. Henry 
Shoemaker, Christmas Seal Chairman 
for Pennsylvania, asked Dr. Shenk 
several weeks ago to serve as a mem- 
ber on the State Committee for the 
1940 sale. (This is one occasion on 
which we hope Dr. Shenk won't get 
all wrapped up in his work.) 

Dr. Lena Lietzau, with her usual 
enthusiasm, represented L. V. C. at 
the 70th Anniversary of Wilson Col- 
lege over the weekend of the twelfth. 

The meeting of the Pennsylvania 
Historical Society drew Dr. Wallace 
to Penn State last week-end. In ad- 
dition to being keenly interested in 
the transactions of the meeting, Dr. 
Wallace was very much impressed by 
their new buildings. 

Miss Grimm recently attended a 
Library Conference at Pittsburgh. 
And, knowing what a driving enthu- 
siast she is, we're willing to wager 
that she really whizzed along that 
turnpike ! 

Last Saturday morning Dr. Stone- 
cipher went to York where a meet- 
ing of the Southern Convention Dis- 
trict of the Pennsylvania State Edu- 
cation Association was being held. 
Our dean is president of that rather 
breathtaking organization. 

In accord with the practice teach- 
ers, who feel rather unsure of them- 
selves without his guidance, we all 
wish Dr. Balsbaugh a very speedy re- 
covery.

Boarding students eligible to 
vote on Tuesday, November 5, will 
be granted the privilege of return-

note a few of the new waxings. ^

A new song called "Shadows On the Sand" with vocal refrain by p r 
Sinatra. A swell sweet song played like "All I Remember Is You." Fij^ 
over ond you get "You're Breaking My Heart All Over Again." Sinatra Wa^ 
bles the vocals equally as nobly as before. Watch this record for there 
something sure-fire about it. 
BY ARTIE SHAW ON VICTOR 267G0 

"Old Old Castle In Scotland" is a smooth tune with a tang of the Sha 
that-used-to-be. If you didn't know better you'd swear it was Maxine gufli* 
van doing the singing instead of Anita Boyer. She does a grand job her 
The tune is the nutz and the band sounds good. For the first time the singly 



strings stuff sounds O. K. "// It's Yon" on the reverse side has another 



smooth 



vocal by Anita. The tune isn't bad and the "icky" stuff on the strings is a l 
right ... if you take to that brand of swing. 
BY LARRY CLINTON ON VICTOR 26766 

Snappy arrangements of a couple snappy tunes in the good old Dip Se 
Doodlers' style. "Dancing On a Dime" and "I Hear Music." The former sun 
sweetly by Terry Allen and the latter swung neatly by Peggy Mann. 
BY GLENN MILLER ON B. B. 10893 

Two sweet tunes we think will go across. "A Handful of Stars" and 
"Yesterthoughts." The Miller sax section does a good job on side number l 
and Beneke has a nice slow ride. On side number 2 we find a nice brass sec' 
tion standing out. Both sides have good vocals by Eberle and should get some- 
where. 

BY WILL BRADLEY ON COLUMBIA 35530 

"Beat Me Daddy, Eight to the Bar," Parts I and II for boogie woogie 
piano is unexcelled. For boogie swing there isn't a thing to touch it. Miller 
and the Andrews Sisters have both released this one, but Bradley does some- 
thing to the song that makes a parallel impossible. 
BY BOB CROSBY ON DECCA 1747 

"At the Jazz Band Ball" appearing currently at the P'way. Released in 
July of '37 this disc should be turned over for real music. The one facing up 
is O. K., but the Meade Lux Lewis tune called "Yancey Special" on the re- 
verse side has a good boogie piano by Zurke. 
AGAIN BY WILL BRADLEY ON COLUMBIA 35732 

More boogie with Freddie Slack doing a neat job with tricky and diffi- 
cult left hand piano ride. The right hand does some fast improvising also. 
Called "Rock-a-Bye the Boogie," it is a lullaby to the eighth notes. Don't 
miss it. While we're on the subject, we think "Walk Me Down the Road" is 
a runner up to "Beat Me Daddy." It has a trio of Bradley on trombone, Mc- 
Kinley on drums and Slack on piano. For rip-snortin' boogie piano get an 
ear-ful of this one. Even Bradley claims it out-does "Beat Me Daddy." 
WATCH FOR THE RELEASE OF THESE: 

Two ten inchers by Victor featuring Artie Shaw's newly formed Gra- 
mercy Five. Included are two originals and two show tunes. 

For your own interest these records may be purchased in Loser's or 
Felty's Music Stores in Lebanon. 



Stage Whispers 

Well, my loyal followers, if any, after going to the rehearsals of both 
our plays, I have come to the conclusion that a lot of these people around 
here are wasting their time at a college that does not feature dramatics. It 
isn't often that when two plays are going into production at once, both pl avs 
have casts composed of veteran actors who know the ropes without too much 
coaching. 

First, let's look at the play for Home-Coming. As has been said be- 
fore, the action is in a French insane asylum, and if you have ever been 
present at the rehearsals, you have seen that the parts come naturally to the 
actors. Marlin Espenshade has really taken over the role of the mad 
prince as if he knew quite a bit about such matters. We especially llke 
the leaping act, so watch for it. . . . Then we have Frank Shenk who 
up the rehearsals by impromptu remarks that will probably find their way 
into the final production. However, if the actors keep taking their l ineS 
literally; for example the one: "Put yourself in my place!", the audience 
won't be able to hear what is going on for laughing, that is, if they al '*j 
in the mood for really light comedy.— The French pronunciation has slo^ e M 
up the production quite a bit; there is the usual difficulty with "Madafl> e 
and the proper names. . . . Then we feel that we should warn you that 
privet is a hedge. Fortunately there is a biologist in the cast, or the pW 
might have gone into its final throes without anyone knowing just ^ 
M. Passandeau was painting. . . . One of our new actors is running i nt0 
little difficulty as his script calls for a line that would definitely not ^ 
press everyone favorably. So when Harry says, "Good heavens!" P^' 
remember that in this case emphasis was sacrificed for euphemy. • • •

^"d Moravian College football team

jo 

° 1C "ed the Lebanon Valley eleven in 
d °IhTehem on Friday night by a 19-3 
The Greyhounds took to the 



score, 
air ' 



the third period to score their 
n d touchdown and from then on 
seC e ° game was all Moravian. Playing 
, ^e lights for the second time 
season, the Blue and White fail- 
Id to produce an attack in the second 
e if after trailing 7 to 3 at half-time. 
Lebanon Valley failed to gain on 
the first play after the kickoff. An in- 
terference penalty set the stage for 
^hillo's quick kick to the Moravian 
Two runs from punt formation 
failed to gain for Moravian. A bad 
kick by Moravian went out of bounds 
on its own 24. Three plays- by L. V. 
failed to gain a first down and Ed 
Schillo booted a high placement thru 
the uprights to give the Valley a 3-0 
lead. 

Moravian took the ball on the kick 
off to score without relinquishing pos- 
session of the oval. Sydorak and 
Fritchman drove to the Greyhound 36 
on a series of spinners and reverses. 
A pass, MeConlogue to Rosati, com- 
ing off of a double reverse from punt 
formation resulted in a first down on 
the Dutchmen 27. The quarter ended 
at this point, but the home team re- 
sumed the attack at the end of the 
breathing spell. 

Fritchman and Sydorak again took 
command to place the ball on the L. 
V. 6 yard line by moving the sticks 
twice by reason of power shots and 
spinners. Two thrusts at the middle 
of the line were thrown back, but 
Fritchman skirted his own right end 
for the first M. C. score and then 
calmly added the point by placement. 

Lebanon Valley's ground attack be- 
gan to function and the Frockmen 
wove to the Greyhound 25 yard 
s Wpe. Here a pass interception halt- 
ed the Valley threat as the half ended. 

Receiving the kickoff at the begin- 
nil >g of the third period, the Blue and 
White aggregation resumed its land 
attack which was highlighted by 
Schillo's long run deep into the home 
Yarn's territory. This dash was called 
hack for a holding charge and the 

all ey resorted to an aerial gain.

Foil And Sabre Club 
Begin Practice 

With a match definitely scheduled, 
the fencing team is practicing indus- 
triously in order to develop to a more 
perfect degree so that it might be in 
the best of condition for the encoun- 
ter. 

Two groups of fencers are con- 
stantly being put through their paces 
by the instructors, Maurice Erdman, 
Dick Phillips, and Frank Zimmerman. 
The boy's group includes Glen, Rubin, 
Stein, Urban, Gerhart, Jiras, Mac- 
Fadden, Cohen, Moyer, Stansfield, 
Yannaccone, Bachman, Stine, and 
Fritchie. From this list, the alter- 
nates for the team will be chosen. 

The other group is composed sole- 
ly of girls attempting to become pro- 
ficient enough with the foil or sabre 
to organize a team. Those practicing 
are Smith, Ehrhart, Schindel, Bern- 
hard, Collins, Dougherty, Ehrlich, 
Keenan, Moore, Baker and Light. 

A match with Lafayette is schedul- 
ed for January 11 in which the foil 
and sabre will be used. Other teams 
are being contacted in an effort to ar- 
range for matches away and at home. 

The members of the team are Phil- 
lips, Erdman and Maurer, using the 
foil, while Zimmerman, Rapp and 
Bryce will use the sabre. 



Harrisburg Defeats 
Lebanon Valley 

Harrisburg Hockey Club defeated 
the Lebanon Valley Hockey team 2-0 
last Saturday on Lebanon Valley's 
field. Harrisburg played a deliberate 
game and their experience served 
them well. Lebanon Valley's team 
was fast but they showed inexper- 
ience in not following up free shots 
quickly and not rushing the ball with 
force when they were within the 
striking circle. 

A number of freshmen were in Leb- 
anon Valley's starting line-up. The 
line-up was as follows: 

L. W., Seavers; L. I., Beamesder- 
fer; C, Wilt; R. L., Snell; R. W., 
Haverstock; L. H., Klopp; C. H., Wit- 
meyer; R. H., Kishpaugh; L. F., Con- 
verse; R. F., Carter; G., Carey. 

Substitutions: Light, Crone, Keller 
and Johns.

SPORTRAIT 

Continuing our review of Senior 
athletes on the campus, we pause this 
week to pay tribute to a fellow that 
we seldom hear much about, but whose 
presence is quickly realized whether 
he be on the gridiron or in the ring. 

Hailing from the Empire state, this 
lad finished his scholastic career in 
a blaze of glory. So great were his 
possibilities, he decided to attend a 
city school in an effort to better his 
career. At the end of his first year, 
he decided to come to Lebanon Valley 
where better opportunities were af- 
forded him, and the Blue and White 
has had no regrets over his decision. 

Handicapped at first by injuries, he 
got off to a slow start. He worked 
hard to overcome his aches and pains, 
but they failed to heal sufficiently to 
permit strenuous work. However, Ted 
was in there working away in an ef- 
fort to belter the team. 

This year his hard work really is 
paying its biggest dividends. Those 
that have seen him play will readily 
say that his consistent line bucking 
and ferocious defensive play are truly 
great; that his inspired playing is 
worthy of highest praise. 

His athletic interests aren't confin- 
ed solely to the gridiron. His career 
as a pugilist is every bit as great as 
his performance as a pigskin carrier. 
Fighting in the light-heavyweight 
class, he entered the Golden Gloves 
Tournament and emerged victor in his 
division. His skill and power amaz- 
ed those that witnessed his bouts. 

Now Ted Ciamillo is going into the 
final round of his college life. We all 
wish him lots of luck in his next great 
battle, feeling certain that he can't 
fail. All we can say is, "He'll be hard 
to replace." 



Congenial Spirit 
Shown By Mr. Learning 

(Continued from Page 1) 



finding out what work is being carried 
on at Albert Academy, Sierre Leone, 
West Africa. According to Mr. Learn- 
ing this institution offers a regular 
high school course to native boys. 
All teaching is done in English, and 
the course corresponds to the aver- 
age high school course in this coun- 
try, except that more bible study is 
included. The graduates of Albert 
Academy become teachers of native 
boys in the elementary subjects. Mr. 
Learning pointed out that one great 
obstacle in teaching these native boys 
is their inability to comprehend Am- 
erican Colloquialisms and slang. He 
said that when teaching such a group 
one must purify his speech of all 
slang terms and colloquial expres- 
sions. 

The representative for the current 
biennial is Miss Wabeline Babbitt of 
Indiana Central College. During the 
present war situation, Miss Babbitt 
has been unable as yet to make the 
voyage to Africa. 



Jhe Spectat 
by joe 



or 



Well fans, we greet you this week with a bowed head, mourning over 
the failure of our Dutchmen to muzzle the Greyhounds of Moravian. What 
makes it look so bad is the fact that we predicted a victory. Oh well, live 
and learn. 

But even in defeat we have our heroes. To us Ed Schillo teaming up 
with Frank Kuhn presented the best bit of backfield work the Blue and 
White has seen. Unfortunately they were on the losing end so they won't 
get much credit. Schillo's line bucking and exceptional kicking was a joy to 
behold. In the front line, we found Captain Bosnyak trying desperately to 
marshall his losing forces into a united band to start a concerted drive for 
the goal. His work too was in vain. 

We were never more surprised than when Schillo dropped back to boot 
a placement between the uprights for a trio of counters in the initial stanza. 
It brought to mind the field goal kicking of Tony Rozman in case anybody 
remembers. Tony kicked three in one game for Lebanon Valley, which 
isn't a bad percentage. 

Word has it that after the opening score by the Valley, Moravian was 
so bewildered they didn't know just what to do. However they seemed to 
have made up their mind in a hurry, because they lost little time in pushing- 
over that touchdown. 

The Dutchmen lost an opportunity at the end of the first half when they 
were threatening, but somehow failed to take advantage of the break. 

Incidentally any of you that remember Moravian's basketball star Mc- 
Conlogne will recall the fact that he's big but he can't take it. It was evi- 
denced on Friday night, when he was bumped a couple of times, he tried to 
scare the boys away. His coach scared him off in a hurry. 

Returning to home grounds, we noticed the installation of three pow- 
erful lights atop the press box located on the local gridiron. It looks like 
our gridironers are in for a heavy schedule the remainder of the year. Well 
if practice makes perfect they're due to hit their stride soon. Or maybe 
they're building up for night football on the installment plan. 

Perhaps this is a bit previous but agitation has started for a couple of 
basketball games before league competition starts. It's just a thought; hope 
it hits home. 

This next is mainly for the benefit of the football squad in general. You 
know fellows, for four years we've been a spectator, rather active at times 
too, never missing a game. We know that the Seniors on the squad share 
the same opinion. We've wanted this year to be our best year, one that we 
could look back at with pride. That ambition is lost, but one other, still as 
great, remains, that is to beat Albright. This can still be a great season 
if the remainder of the games on the schedule are won. If we didn't think 
you could do it, we wouldn't mention it, but we've seen you play and know 
that it can be done. So just for the sake of curiosity, see if the rest of the 
games can't be put in the right side of the ledger. 

And now finally, don't forget the celebration sponsored by the "L" 
Club on Saturday night in the Annville H. S. gymnasium.

Because of the increased interest 
in fencing displayed by the girls it 
was decided by the W. A. A. Cabinet 
to elect Jane Smith as fencing leader. 
She will henceforth take her place on 
the cabinet and fencing will be con- 
sidered as a definite girls sport. 

A thief hike was held this evening 
by the W. A. A. for the freshmen. 
They followed the trail of the thief 
out to William's quarry where they 
found that the thief had prepared 
quite a feast for them. 

The score of last Saturday's hockey 
game is no indication of the strength 
of the team. L. V.'s girls play a fast 
game and should be able, now that 
they have had some experience, to 
take over Shippensburg this Satur- 
day morning on their own field. Car- 
ey stepped into the goalie position this 
year and handles the job like an old 
hand. Look out for Haverstock at 
wing next Saturday, we understand 
she's really an A-l hockey player. 
Witmeyer and Wilt at the center po- 
sitions make a good combination and 
with a little more practice should be 
able to take the ball right through 
into the goal cage. Come on, forward 
line, a little more fight and drive 
within the striking circle. 

Dr. and Mrs. Lynch always support 
the hockey team and were both there 
last week — why don't more of you 
follow their example?

LV.C. To Tackle P.M.C. 

Annual Homecoming Game 
To Be Played In Lebanon 

The Flying Dutchmen will travel 
to Lebanon on Saturday to engage 
Pennsylvania Military College in a 
football game that will highlight a 
weekend of Homecoming activities. 
The Cadets have won two games out 
of five played this year and are as 
determined to balance the ledger as 
the Blue and White. The P. M. C. 
outfit has easily beaten Hartwick and 
Blue Ridge, but have suffered defeats 
at the hands of N. Y. U., Villanova, 
and West Chester. Blue Ridge, who 
will be met by L. V. C. on the fol- 
lowing week, was defeated 20-0. 

In the series to date, Lebanon Val- 
ley has won five and lost one while 
one game resulted in a tie. The best 
games of the series took place in the 
last four years. In 1936 the Cadets 
ran back the opening kickoff for a 
six-pointer, but failed to convert. L. 
V. scored on the last play of the game 
and added the point to win 7-6. Tony 
Rozman kicked a field goal in the next 
year's game to bring victory to the 
Valley. 

In 1938 Rozman kicked a field goal 
and Brown scored on a pass from 
Kress early in the game. This same 
combination worked late in the game 
to give L. V. a 15-10 win. Walk, 
Kuhn, and Ciamillo each scored once 
and Schillo twice in last year's en- 
counter.

The Highwayers 

by Alf Noise 

Last Wednesday, during the face 
filling hour, a multitude of students 
gathered before the Northern Castle 
of the Dames as Romeo Rubin called 
to his lady love on the balcony. This 
scene was very touching, especially 
when in dire need of a Juliet, Swindel, 
a ''frosh" fellow, was substituted. Ro- 
meo called out his lines to the "stooge" 
but the crowd roared for emotion and 
"umph." Poor Rubin, who strove to 
complete his congressional sentence, 
called for a "New Deal" in the bal- 
cony. Realizing Rubin's predicament, 
Ellen Ruppersberger was drafted by 
several upper classmen with choice. 
(P. S.— Sherk plus others then yelled 
to substitute for Rubin.) 

Feeling that the Friday morning 
"Pep" session lacked the usual fight, 
a group of the "studes" sent the walls 
of the "lower room" rocking as they 
held their own session. Cheers, 
speeches by "Kid" Swoope and 
"frosh" water boys, and noise by all 
called for a faculty investigation. Carl 
Sherk, our chief agitator and "funny 
man," has been most generous this 
year in contributing his talents to the 
general cause. 

I fear the "ferns" suspect your re- 
porter and are avoiding him or are 
inoculated against publicity. Tihe 
W. D. S. R. has been somewhat of a 
"deserted village" as compared to 
other years. The chief source of pres- 
ent day entertainment centered 
around two lovers who chose the noon 
hour and the steps behind the library 
as a rendezvous; but their technique 
was poor, so the girls are devoid of 
any speakable pleasure. Why don't 
you try the picnic tables now that the 
ants are frozen in the ground. 

Ken Guthrie was anxious to get a 
picture of sailor Joe Fauber in his 
uniform. His anxiety was too grea.. 
for he flashed the bulb and clickeo 
the shutter before poor Joe had got 
into the most vital part of the attire. 
Joe is very much worried about triit 
picture which could be used most con- 
veniently for black-mail purposes. 
Remember Ken, in America there is 
such a thing as freedom of the pres.s. 
so don't hesitate to publish. 

The cider the Tyrone assistants had 
on ice was the answer to the ridcl.t 
of smacking lips on students emerg- 
ing from the museum last week. Whei. 
the brew became of the strengtn cap 
able of self-removing the cork, the 
good Prop decided to confiscate it be 
fore "Bob," "Carpie," "Epsie" and 
' Earl" would need "assistants" to as- 
sist them. Now they know that the 
"stuff" wasn't poured down the drain, 
so the "peoples" who are lucky are 
warned. 



Boys Reciprocate 
Girls' Hospitality 

This Sunday, October 27, the girls, 
who were harassed by an invading 
horde of men last Sunday, will be 
able to countercharge and sweep into

The hours for the attack are from 
2-5 P. M. 



Kalo Plans Smoker 
For Tuesday Night 

A smoker will be held on Tuesday, 
October 29, by the Kalozetean literary 
society in their room in Engle Hall. 
They invite all freshmen and non- 
society men to attend this session 
which will begin at 8:00. On the pro- 
gram are talks by the advisers, gen- 
eral discussion, and a social period. 
Refreshments and favors are to sup- 
plement their more formal plans for 
the meeting.

Christmas cards for the benefit of 
the Chinese will be sold by the Y. W. 
C. A. These are obtained from the 
Church, Committee for Chinese Relief 
which is recognized as a reliable agen- 
cy for aiding that country. The price 
of the cards is one dollar a dozen but 
they may be ordered in smaller quan- 
tities. To obtain these cards one 
should contact Martha Jane Koontz 
or any member of the Y. W. C. A. 
cabinet. 



A Letter 



Secretary of Student Government, 
Lebanon Valley College. 
Dear Secretary: 

I have been requested by Student 
Council of Albright to inquire if ne- 
gotiations could be made to prevent 
the painting and mutilation of each 
other's campus before football games. 
If your governing council agrees, we 
can present the matter to the student 
bodies and I am sure they will coop- 
erate. 



Hoping that you will hasten some 
definite action concerning our inquiry 
we await with interest an early re- 
ply-

MILDER, BETTER-TASTING 

over the country, more smokers 
are buying Chesterfields today than ever 
before because these Cooler, Better -Tasting 
and Definitely Milder cigarettes give them 
what they want. That's why smokers call 
Chesterfield the Smoker's Cigarette. 

Smokers like yourself know they can 
depend on Chesterfield's Right Combination of 
Turkish and Domestic tobaccos for the best things 
of smoking. Chesterfield smokers get the benefits of 
every modern improvement in cigarette making.

Bordwell Directs First Presentation of Year 



Sophs Outpull 
Frosh In Tug 

First try won by Frosh 

Last Saturday, October 26, at 9:30 
\ M., the Class of '43 avenged their 
defeat in the numeral fight by dupli- 
cating their feat of last year of sub- 
merging the hapless, defeated oppo- 
nents in the chilling waters of Ye 
Olde Quittapahilla creek. The victori- 
ous sophomores, headed by Coaches 
Barney Bentzel and Max Flook, af- 
ter failing in the first tug, revived 
to overcome the then over-confident 
frosh in the second pull and the de- 
ciding third. 

The dubious honor of carrying the 
rope across the Quittie was granted 
to Robert Winemiller, a freshman, 
who, either because of fear of the 
howling sophomores or because of his 
freshman knowledge, accomplished his 
task without allowing a spray of wa- 
ter to touch the rope; however, this 
miraculous achievement was of no aid 
to the sophs. 

The second year men experimented 
with a system of digging holes on 
both sides of the rope which handi- 
capped them for the first tug, but 
proved to be the secret of success as 
the yearlings were compelled to wad- 
in the muddy, irregularly placed 
holes for the last two pulls.

As its contribution to the activities 
of Home-coming week-end, on Satur- 
day evening the Wig and Buckle Club 
presented a French comedy by Duver- 
nois entitled "The Bronze Lady and 
the Crystal Gentleman." 

Not only did this mark Wig and 
Buckle's debut for the 1940-41 season, 
but it also marked the debut of veter- 
an actress Margaret Bordwell as a 
director. Considering the limitations 
of the play, the cast, and the time 
of preparation, it is the opinion of 
this critic that she did a creditable 
job. We must admit, however, that 
this bit of comedy seemed rather on 
the high-school side in comparison 
with the Home-coming one-actors of 
the last two years. However, as a 
means of getting the crowd into a 
not-so-serious mood for the dance, it 
was well -selected. 

And now for the bouquets. Skunk- 
cabbages to the constant ad-libbing 
necessitated by those who didn't know 
their lines, and to the broom-swing- 
ing, slapstick climax. Roses to Frank 
Shenk for his convincing Ding-dongs; 
to Betty Shillot for quick picking up 
on a mutilated key line; and to Har- 
ry Miller for a promising initial per- 
son tinned on Page 2, Column 2) 

Ghosts To Walk At 
Day Student Party 

On Saturday evening, November 2, 
ghosts, goblins and witches will take 
over the Alumni Gymnasium at 8:00 
p.m. Up to that time, tickets can be 
purchased for the nominal fee of 
twenty-five cents from any of the fol- 
lowing day students: Marjorie Kish- 
paugh, Elizabeth Kerr, Louise Keller, 
Marilyn Troutman, Anna Boeshore, 
Esther Wagner, Raymond Hess, John 
Hampton, LeRoy Yeats. 

Co-chairmen of the entertainment 
committee, Ruth Wix and Sam Der- 
ick have in store a number of original 
Hallowe'en ideas to keep the party 
interesting. In addition to prizes giv- 
en for clever costumes, there will be 
applebobbing and other traditional 
party games. The evening will be 
rounded out with dancing and refresh- 
ments. 

Please take note of the date, Sat- 
urday, November 2, as it has been 
changed since plans for the party 
were begun. 



Conserve Dance Is 
In Lititz, Nov. 23 

The Annual Conservatory Dinner- 
Dance will be held Saturday, Novem- 
ber 23, at the Hotel General Sutter 
in Lititz. This is always the highlight 
of the Conservatory year and is eag- 
erly anticipated by alumni as well as 
the present students. 

The committee, two members from 
each class, for the dance is: Mary 
Elizabeth Spangler, Luke Hains, Vir- 
ginia Goodman, Harry Drendle, Jane 
Gruber, James Yestadt, Leah Foltz, 
and Franklin Unger. Jane Gruber is 
the general chairman. 



To Entertain New Men 

This Tuesday evening, November 
5, at 8:00, the Philokosian Literary 
Society will hold a smoker in honor 
of the freshmen and non-society stu- 
dents in Philo Hall. Short talks, dis- 
cussions, and various other forms of 
entertainment will compose the in- 
formal program, after which refresh- 
ments and favors will be distributed. 
Faculty members and upperclass Phi- 
los, remembering last year's success- 
ful sessions, join in inviting all non- 
society men to the first smoker of the 
year. The smoker is the last society 
event before the four-society dance. 



Battista Appears 
In Town Hall 
On Nov. 12 

Mr. Joseph Battista, the new piano 
instructor at Lebanon Valley College 
will soon begin a series of recitals. 
His first concert will be presented in 
Town Hall, New York City, November 
12. This is an unusual privilege and 
opportunity and it is our regret that 
we cannot all attend. Following this, 
he will give recitals in other cities, 
including one here on the campus. 

Mr. Battista shows promise of ris- 
ing to the heights as a concert pian- 
ist. He has, during his short career, 
received praise from the press as well 
as from his enthusiastic audience. 

His life has been extremely musi- 
cal. He was born in South Philadel- 
phia to parents who had come from 
Italy. At the age of 5, he showed 
musical talent and dreamed of be- 
coming a concert artist. He attended 
the Philadelphia Schools continually 
winning musical contests. 

With 11 members in his family, 
it was necessary that Joseph should 
earn as soon as possible. He spent his 
summers playing in hotels and where- 
ever he could obtain work. Some in- 
terested Philadelphians helped him to 
get on his feet. 

He studied for a year at the Phila- 
delphia Conservatory under Olga 
Samaroff. He applied for a fellowship 
in the Juilliard Graduate School and 
won it. This gave him an opportunity 
to receive master instruction and

FULDHEIM STIRS L. V. 
STUDENTS TO THINK 
AS AMERICANS 

Speaker Received With 
Enthusiasm By Students 



Mrs. Dorothy Fuldheim presented 
the subject, "United States from the 
World Point of View," in the chapel 
period on Wednesday morning. This 
European traveler gave a graphic pic- 
ture of what she has observed, with 
the conclusions she has drawn. Her 
concluding note was a challenge to 
Americans to nobly and courageous 
ly keep alive the spirit of liberty. 

The background of this woman who 
is known as "the best-informed wo- 
man in America" is unusual. First a 
school teacher, secondly an actress, 
and then as a journalist she developed 
a basis for her services now as a lec- 
turer. In this last capacity she has 
traveled for twelve years throughout 
the United States. More than 2,000 
audiences have heard her speak on 
more than 400 subjects which range 
from "The History of the Russian 
Revolution" to "Is There a Gold Stan- 
dard?" 

Mrs. Fuldheim's knowledge is well 
founded upon her traveling experi- 
ences and interviews with famous fig- 
ures. However, she feels her obser- 

Clio President Names 
Committees For Dance 



vations of the common European in 
her yearly journeys mean more to her 
than the interviews with the more 
significant digits. She is widely read 
and at present possesses one of the 
largest modern libraries in Cleveland. 
Before she threw herself wholeheart- 
edly into lecturing this woman com- 
mentator acted as a foreign corre- 
spondent for the Associated Press. 
Her contacts have thus mingled a 
masculine point of view with a wo- 
man's sympathetic understanding. To 
sum up Dorothy Fuldheim is the quo- 
tation: "Dramatic, fluent, scholarly, 
versatile. She is strikingly attractive 
in appearance and has a charmini? 
manner. Whatever her subjects, be : t 
past history or current affairs, art or 
literature, this brilliant woman infus- 
es a quality that insures not a dull 
moment. "

election 



On Tuesday, November 5, 1940, the 
American people will go to the polls 
to participate in the most momentous 
election since 1860 and 1804, because 
they will be called upon to decide 
questions that vitally affect the Uni- 
ted States: democratic governmental 
forms and the entire economic system 
of the United States. 

Probably every presidential cam- 
paign seems to those conducting it un- 
usually important and dangerously 
serious. One thing that distinguished 
this campaign is the fact of its sin- 
gular importance and seriousness 
which is shared by the great mass of 
American people. The great majority 
of people will go to the polls feeling 
that they are coining to the aid of 
their country, whatever their party 
allegiance might be. 

There are very many pertinent is- 
sues to be considered in this cam- 
paign. As to the political issues, ex- 
cept for a few minority "fifth column" 
groups who are seeking to under- 
mine and eventually destroy our de- 
mocracy, American citizens are near- 
lv all agreed on the two essential is- 
sues. They are : First, A more per- 
fect unification of our own country, 
and secondly, an efficient defense sys- 
tem against aggression from abroad. 
These two issues have been the goal 
toward which we, as a nation, have 
been striving since the beginning of 
our history — the goal which will real- 
ize for us our constitutional rights of 
life, liberty, and the pursuit of hap- 
piness. These issues both suggest the 
same means — self -disciplined loyalty 
to our free, traditional American in- 
stitutions. 

The question that immediately aris- 
es is whether Mr. Roosevelt or Mr. 
Willkie will be the most competent 
person to lead this country in the 
crusade for the preservation of these 
fundamental institutions. In accord 
with the student vote, LA VIE COL- 
LEGIENNE is supporting Mr. Wen- 
dell Willkie, believing that he, a 
staunch advocate of the nation's long 
and expanding future and in the gen- 
ius of the American people, will be 
best fitted to lead America back to 
the democratic way of life. We want 
Willkie because we are opposed to the 
Rooseveltian New Deal government. 
We object to "national socialism, na- 
tional capitalism or a complete con- 
cent ration of power in a centralized 
government of the economic forces of 
the country." Let us retain tradi- 
tional American government by sup- 
porting one who believes in America. 



The Highwayers 

by Alf Noise 

As in the international world, 
trouble brews behind closed doors, so 
too, is the case in our Calcutta retreat. 
This week the den was converted into 
a court where a robust trial on the 
French Revolution type was held. 
Charles Tyson, the defendant, was ac- 
cused by patriots of statements, con- 
sidered un-American, spoken by him 
at the Pennway. Tyson, torn by the 
jeers and cheers of the rabble, calm- 
ly sucked his pipe as his attorne> 
Boltz fought to prove his defendant's- 
constitutional liberty. Freed by the 
heated argument envolved Charlie is 
again free to carry on his political en- 
terprise and traverse the road to bj 
come the cell-mate of Earl Brouder. 



Your reporter has intimated in a 
previous issue that the fires of the 
Immler-Ebersole duo were far from 
being extinguished. If one doubts 
my veracity, investigation of the A. 
M. and P. M. "woo pitching sessions" 
in a certain traveling omnibu3 is not 
only most convincing, but instruclive 
and entertaining. 



If you are among the uninformed 
and have come across a certain 
group of W. O. S. speaking some 
primitive tongue, be not alarmed at 
their going native. In a certain 
English course phonetics is the pres- 
ent rage, so be kind in your attitude 
towards conscientious neurotic stud- 
ents. 



Frosh Van Arden Swindel has be- 
come a well-known character not 
only because of his suggestive name, 
which terminated in defeat for frosh 
treasurer, but because of his faithful 
D. T. service for upper classmen. Now 
we catch this haunted frosh making 
goo goo eyes at Marion Kreider in 
his spare moments up in Tyron's sac- 
red presence. 



When Harvey Snyder says he has 
"90 reasons" for not having a date, 
do not ake him literally and ask him 
to state them numerically. The little 
lady in white has left the home town 
hospital for the metropolitan bright 
lights and the 90 reasons are really 
miles between the "twa." 



When one of our conservatives sud- 
denly rushes us off our feet by keep- 
ing up with the best dressed co-eds, 
we dared to question the motive. This 
year "Freddie" Laucks has definitely 
gone vogue; and when approached on 
the matter, she only smiles. Could it 
be that she has joined the army for 
a tall, dark, and handsome man ? 



When Earl Reber gave the tradi- 
tional hop signal before glaring 
head lights, the car stopped but in- 
stead of a hop he got a cop — 
one of those state six foot jobs. Brave- 
ly Earl answered "Yes, sir" and "No 
sir," and then took the bus. Now it's 
tad enough when these fellows tell 
you where to go; but when they ap- 
pear without their little white cars 
then they ain't playing fair.

Stage Whispers 



While digging around in the basement workroom of the Wig and Buckle 
Club it was disvovered that all of the flats which Bud Spohn built when he 
was a student here have been so completely wrecked that it is now impossible 
to find a complete set for our stage. It seems that whenever a door was need- 
ed in a play, instead of looking among the flats for one that had a door in, 
it was the custom to just go ahead and whittle a door out of an entirely new 
flat. At the present there is not one fairly large set left that does not have 
either a door or window cut in it. Now you must admit that is pretty fool- 
ish. These flats are (or should we speak of the dear departed which were?) the 
joint property of the four societies and the Wig and Buckle Club. They were 
placed in the custody of the Wig and Buckle for convenience. There has nev- 
er been any restriction when any group wished to use them. But now that 
they have been so completely mutilated, something must be done. In all prob- 
ability your society will be asked to help foot the bill for new flats, and you 
members will say that if the Wig and Buckle wants them it can pay for them. 
But you must remember that you used them for your anniversary plays, and 
that it was you, not the Wig and Buckle, that ruined them. You will be ex- 
pected to take good care of these new sets, and if necessary rules for their 
use will be imposed. And the next time you give a play, please paint the flats 
all the same color !

cinematics 

by Maurie Erdman 

Among the not-to-be-missed shows is The Westerner, a bang-bang, rip 
snortin' saga of the Old West. The plot concerns the town of Vinegaroon, 
Texas, wherein rules one Judge Roy Bean (Walter Brennan) who is the only 
"Law West of the Picos." With an ancient copy of the "Revised Statutes" 
and a pair of .44's he administers his own brand of law and order. The best 
way to describe Brennan's portrayal is in his own words when he said, "Son, 
I once had a pet rattlesnake that I liked a lot, but I never turned my back 
on him." Judge Roy Bean had one soft spot in his heart and it burned for 
Lily Langtry, British stage actress of the '80's, for whom he changed the 
name of Vinegaroon to Langtry. 

Gary Cooper plays the strong, silent, straight-shootin' stranger who 
disrupts the forces of injustice and disorder of Bean's rule. The other half 
of the love interest is played by Homesteader Doris Davenport for whose 
sake Cooper shoots it out to a finish with the wily old Judge. 

Throughout the entire show you'll be taken by waves of anger, seas of 
tears, and storms of laughter. For real entertainment don't miss it. 

Another of the action-shows soon to reach our fair town is The Sea Hawk 
with the inconquerable Errol Flynn in the lead. It is a story of the British 
privateers who sailed the seas under the British flag a-plunderin' and a-shoot- 
m', mak.n' trouble for the Spanish at every turn. Every time the Spanish 
would put out of a port the Sea Hawks were sure to be waiting to snag the 
boat. It was really amazing how these boys did get around. Naturally the 
Spanish got a bit irked as this game became costly, so they swing into action 
Flynn and his crew escape from their captors in the nick of time to warn 
the Queen of England of the approaching attack by the Spanish Armada. 

The show is packed with thrills and beautiful camera shots. Get to see 
this one if you can.

A 19-16 SCORE 



pate Of Dutchmen 
By A Doubtful Decision 



Settled 



Utilizes' ^ e mos t effective weapons 
var fare, the aerial bomb, the P. 
r Cadets subdued the L. V. C. 
19-16, in an interesting 



of 

n u tchmen, 

d disputed battle on the gridiron 
a 'ea of the Lebanon High School sta- 
dium- 

It was Homecoming Day and the old 

ads beheld their Alma Mater beat- 
ing th e Cadets to a pulp, until by rea- 
nf some last defensive and of- 
tensive play of the Blue and White, 
p M- C. got in the driver's seat and 
r0 de on to an upsetting victory. 

The victory resulting play will un- 
doubtedly be disputed for days, and 
perhaps years, to come, but it still 
w iU go down in the record books as 
a ^.16 win for P. M. C. 

The play in question arose from the 
situation as follows: Ted Ciamillo in- 
tercepted a P. M. C. aerial on his own 
40 and raced down the sideline ap- 
parently to score, but was unfortu- 
nately knocked down by his own block- 
er. With approximately two minutes 
to go, the Valley was holding a 16-13 
edge and was going to attempt to earn 
another tally. This was evident when 
Kuhn dropped back and threw a pass 
into the flat, where Hartnett immedi- 
ately snared the oval to dash 17 yards 
before he was stopped on his own 32 
yard line. Hartnett tore through the 
line for a first down to the 42. Piff 
then faded back and heaved the pig- 
skin to Bond, who awaited the ball 
on the Blue and White 48. Grabbing 
the ball, he had apparently stepped 
out of bounds. A whistle was blown, 
and shouts of "no play" were heard, 
but Bond unheedingly raced on while 
the rest of the two teams watched 
him go. The score was allowed and 

M. C. assumed the lead, 19-16, with 
25 seconds remaining to be played. 

For the remainder of the game Leb- 
anon Valley futilely heaved aerials in 
atl attempt to connect for a score. 

Lebanon Valley dominated the play 
the ent ire game until those fatal wan- 
l H seconds. Kicking off, L. V. gained 

r!!f e f Si ° n of the P^skj"- when the 
* 4 s fumbled on the first play. 
ev er, the Blue and White failed 
capitalize on the play and lost the

aid line - The remainder of the first

minute to go, the locals punted, not 
a very good one at that, to their own 
35 from whence it was returned to 
the twenty. After a penalty, Piff 
tossed to Glenn in the flat for a score, 
and the half ended. 

Coming back strong, the Valley be- 
gan to roll in earnest. Starting from 
the 31 yard line they pounded down 
the field to score when Kuhn passed 
to Grabusky on the fifty yard mark- 
er. Bruno romping the rest of the 
way on some nice running. The place- 
ment was wide and the score read 13- 
6 in favor of the Valley. 

Shortly afterwards Smith returned 
a punt from his own 45 yard line to 
the P. M. C. 15 yard stripe. A pen- 
alty set the Dutchmen back, but Kuhn 
booted a perfect placement from a dif- 
ficult angle, making the score 16-6, 
the Dutchmen leading. 

Determined not to surrender the 
Cadets began to work in an effort to 
overcome the deficit. One touchdown 
was made when Piff snared the oval 
to race to the 4 yard line from where 
Hartnett smashed across to score. His 
extra point was good. 

Then came the winning tally that 
caused so much discussion, and that 
was previously described. Credit must 
be given P. M. C. for not giving up 
even in those final minutes when all 
looked hopeless. 

The game was savagely played with 
the Cadets holding the edge in man 
power even though it was highly crip- 
pled. 

For the Valley, Kuhn, Ciamillo 
and Schillo were outstanding in the 
backfield, Ciamillo's running was re- 
ally great. In the line, Grabusky, 
Bosnyak, Schmalzer, and Rakow play- 
ed the whole contest without relief. 

In the P. M. C. ranks, it was Hart 
nett and Piff doing all the work with 
Bond snaring a few timely forwards

gain a wide knowledge of music. Dur- 
ing the season of 1937-1938, he il- 
lustrated one of Madame Samaroff's 
lectures and because of his brilliant 
playing, was engaged to illustrate all 
her lectures for the following season. 
Again he captivated his audience, es- 
pecially with his performance of his 
own transcription of "Falstaff." 

Battista won the Youth Contest of 
the Philadelphia Orchestra in the 
Spring of 1938. This entitled him to 
an appearance with the orchestra, so 
on January 18, 1939, just 4 days be- 
fore his 21st birthday, the great 
chance came — he played the Rach- 
maninoff Concerto in C Minor under 
the direction of Eugene Ormandy. His 
suberb performance won him such 
recognition that he was engaged by 
the orchestra for the final concerts. 

During his short career, Mr. Bat- 
tista has displayed with tremendous 
success his extraordinary technique, 
talent and all the factors envolved 
in a great concert artist. It is our 
hope and wish for him that it will 
not be long until he has achieved his 
goal— that of one of America's great 
pianists.

GRABUSKY 
. . . who has led L. V. C. to victory 
by his versatility. 

— SPORTRAIT — 

Our subject today is a member of 
the football squad, who for four years 
has proved his worth to Blue and 
White followers by his versatility and 
determined play on the gridiron. 

He's not a flashy ball player, nor 
one who plays in spui'ts, but rather a 
consistent, dependable performer. His 
play has won him the plaudits of 
many crowds; his touchdowns have 
won games for his Alma Mater. Never 
has he asked any quarter, nor has he 
ever shown mercy to those that don't 
deserve it. 

Coming to the Valley as a center, 
he found that position taken care of 
fairly well. At the same time, he re- 
ceived an early scrimmage injury that 
kept him idle for a short time. Soon 
he was back in the thick of things, 
and proved to be a valuable substi- 
tute. 

However, the next year, his ability 
was considered too great to be kept 
in the role of a sub, and so he was 
drafted into end service, where he has 
been playing ever since. 

His defensive play is as good as 
any around, with his continually 
breaking up the interference to bring 
down the ball carrier. On the offense, 
he's a hard man to replace. He snares 
the oval in a manner that brings joy 
to the L. V. followers. 

This year he was again at center 
but only recently was he moved to 
end to utilize his pass catching abil- 
ity. It was a wise move and Bi*uno 
showed his coaches that he can still 
snare them when he nabbed a forward 
and raced for a score. 

Now Bernard Grabusky is getting 
ready to race for his final touchdowns, 
determined to make this his greatest 
year, and hoping that L. V. C. has 
in some way profited by his versatil- 
ity. 

We can assure you that she has, 
and there will be a day when our Al- 
ma Mater will wish she had a few 
more Bruno Grabuskys. 




Dear Editor Janie : 

In one of my recent friendly let- 
ters from a Jesuit "prof" of the Uni- 
versity of Santa Clara there appear- 
ed a brief tribute to our college week- 
ly. Not wishing that these "orchids 
to LA VIE" perish in the manner of 
the desert flowers in Grey's Elegy, I 
quote the excerpt. 

"Thanks for the copy of LA VIE 
COLLEGIENNE. Delightful sur- 
prise; quaint; different from the more 
robust type of college weekly out here 
in the wild and woolly west. I am not 
sarcastic; it is simply that I like to 
get away from the vulgarity of some 
of the things that we Westerners take 
for granted only because we have 
never come in contact with some of 



Dutchmen To Visit 
Blue Ridge 

Blue & White To Meet the 
Marylanders for first time 

On Saturday the Lebanon Valley 
football squad will journey to Wind- 
sor, Maryland, to meet the Blue 
Ridge team. Having never been on the 
schedule before, perhaps the season's 
record will give the reader some idea 
of what caliber team the "Flying 
Dutchmen" will meet. To date, Blue 
Ridge has played five games, losing 
four of them. However they did show 
promise in holding a strong undefeat- 
ed Moravian eleven to a 14-6 score. 

Lebanon Valley, on the other hand, 
has been victorious in one game and 
has dropped three. In spite of this 
rather poor percentage, the Blue and 
White squad does have the makings 
of a good team, as was shown by 
their complete outplaying of P. M. C. 
•jntil those disastrous last two min- 
utes. So, here's hoping for a few 
breaks in the games to follow, and 
fcr better support from the student 
body. 



Tug - o'War 




Sophs Outpull 
Frosh In Tug 



— Ullery. 



(Continued from Page 1) 



The freshmen drew first blood, and 
their last, by dragging the vainly, 
struggling sophomores into the 
stream. After this, the freshmen 
showed their greenness by abandon- 
ing their position withoiit spoiling 
their old holes, while the sophs, al- 
though humbled, were still experi- 
enced enough to make their terrible 
diggings more treacherous. The inter- 
esting portion of this episode was the 
lesson which the yearlings learned 
from it. Immediately after they had 
unsuccessfully defended their posi- 
tion in the second tug, they had the 
questionable presence of mind to 
drench their already impossible holes 
with buckets of water. Yet to the 
horror of these frosh, what were they 
to find out, but that the flip of a 
coin had destined them to remain in 
their old abode for a few minutes 
longer until the end of the battle. Be- 
fore the activities had begun, it had 
been mutually decided to have the 
three tugs over the water instead of 
the traditional land pull for the third 
struggle. 

The triumphant, mud-clad sopho- 
more team celebrated this victory by 
ducking Bob Dresel, the luckless coach 
of the Class of '44, and by parading 
with the rope through the main street 
of Annville, greatly to the disgust of 
the town's sight-seers. 



the refinements of a slightly older 
culture." 

Your beloved staff member, 
BOB NICHOLS. 



* J he Spectator 



by j 



joe 

It is not the policy of this writer 
to blame officials for every defeat suf- 
fered by athletic teams representing 
Lebanon Valley but it is his policy 
to condemn flagrant errors and mis- 
demeanors on the part of the magis- 
trates supervising the play of the 
game. 

The Blue and White eleven practi- 
cally had the ball game in their pock- 
ets and their uniforms stored away 
in the lockers for another week only 
to find iheir opponents on the long 
side of the score through the ineffic- 
iency of the officials. We realize that 
these men are only human and are 
not totally infallible but many a ball 
game has gone the wrong way on 
their account. Remember that 
Notre Dame-Carnegie Tech game a 
few years back? 

The situation in question took place 
in the last half minute of the P. M. 
C. game in Lebanon last Saturday. 
First of all, Bond, the P. M. C. end 
snared the pass and seemed to be 
heading for the sideline to avoid be- 
ing tackled. Two L. V. tacklers mo- 
mentarily stopped his attempt to cut 
back. Secondly, an official is report- 
ed to have blown his whistle at this 
point to stop the play. 

Thirdly, Bond seems to have step- 
ped out of bounds on the play. Last- 
ly, one of the men in white is reput- 
ed to have shouted "'No Play" or 
something to that effect to prevent 
the Dutchmen pass defenders who 
were coming up to meet the play 
from murdering the struggling P. M. 
C. end. 

Every one knows that according to 
the rules, a penalty is provided to 
prevent players from taking unfair 
advantage of their opponents by con- 
tinuing to operate after the whistle. 
This rule does not pertain to the 
whistle sounded indicating an infrac- 
tion as the play begins to develop. 
It refers to the whistle ending the 
play. 

The men holding on to Bond and 
those who had him trapped re- 
laxed as the whistle was blown in or- 
der to avoid incurring a penalty with 
their team out in front by a 16 to 13 
score. Officials naturally are on the 
alert for fouls committed by the team 
in the lead and are not too reluctant 
in calling penalties on that team. 
Bond, as we know too well, then pro- 
ceeded to dog-trot down the field into 
pay-dirt. Enough has been said on 
that score. 

Teddy Ciamillo showed real drive on 
those two long runs. He simply re- 
fused to be stopped and kept his legs 
churning until brought down. Frank 
Kuhn played his usual game and 
showed up well on the reverse play 
around his right end on several occa- 
sions. The passing attack of the 
Dutchmen was what really kept the 
Valley in the ball game with Staley, 
Grabusky and Dorazio on the receiv- 
ing end of Kuhn's and Shillo's heaves.

65 Register Here 
For Conscription 

On Registration Day, October 14, 
1940, sixty-five students of Lebanon 
Valley College registered for conscrip- 
tion. 

Each draftee received a small card 
called a registration certificate. Each 
card will be given a serial number and 
numbers will be drawn by chance in 
a national lottery in Washington, D. 
C. The order in which these serial 
numbers are drawn will determine the 
draftee's order number. His order 
number will determine the order in 
which, in his local board area, he may 
be called for training and service un- 
less he is deferred. It is believed, 
however, that none of the students 
will have to interrupt their college 
courses this year in order to answer 
such a call.

THE PENNWAY 



by Autrefois 

This week let's take time off to go 
back just five years in La Vie and see 
what's of interest. It seems strange- 
ly coincidental that Philo and Del- 
phian held a joint session Fri., Oct. 
18, 1936 and in 1940 the same socie- 
ties joined their efforts in a dance 
just one evening later. 

In 1935 the sophs led by John 
Gongloff as captain gave the frosh a 
good ducking in the short time of 2 
minutes, 31.6 seconds. That was the 
first tug. The second tug took 3 min- 
utes 14.2 seconds. Boyd Sponaugle, 
present coach at Hummelstown, was 
the referee. He judged the contest 
between the following teams — Sophs, 
Gongloff, captain; Raab; Shaffer; 
Marberger; Aungst (and we don't 
mean Dean, Ausi); Frey; Bollinger; 
Berger; Shearer; Capka. Frosh — 
Guinivan, (Tom not Bob) captain; 
Dempsey; Baier; Clark (remember 
Bill?); Tschop; Silvers (oh, Ellen); 
Woiley; Lehman; Smith and Kinney.

Late Spring 



From bleak and snow-bound towers, 
Still press the legions of cold, 
Flinging dark and dismal missiles 
Of a siege long since grown old. 

Misty snowflakee whirl around, 
Cold dead branches faintly sway, 
And from yon distant frozen stream 
Whirling currents through ice packs 
play. 

But slowly moving through the foe 
There stirs an ever potent force, 
Long dormant, yet with subtle urging, 
Calls forth glad spring from ancient 



Splintered to melting drops 

An ice-pointed spear falls 

And notes of conquest surge from all, 

As over the hill a robin calls.

Stage Whispers 

(Continued from Page 2) 



In view of the announcement of the 
selection of the Junior Class play, a 
word is in order concerning that am- 
bitious piece of drama. 

The Class of '41 tried something 
new in the way of plays when it pre- 
sented a mystery, and '42 is follow- 
ing this tradition by attempting a 
historical play. "Poor Richard" is not. 
however, the rah-rah type of drama 
that Hollywood is turning out now- 
adays. The historical basis for the 
Play is in characters rather than in 
situations. The author's purpose 
seems to have been to show some- 
thing of the friction between Lord 
Stormont, British Ambassador to 
France, and the Ambassador from the 
colonies, Benjamin Franklin. Both 
these characters are well-drawn, 
showing the author's accurate under- 
standing of the two men and his art 
in portraying their vastly different 
personalities. 



Reber Is Jr. Congressman 



Earl Wayne Reber was selected

to 

re Pla Ce 

cy in the council was caused by ]}• 
fenderfer's serving with the Nati ^ 
Guard instead of returning to I . 
C. this fall. ' V - 



But do not think that histor' 
character portrayal is the only d ra * 
ing card of "Poor Richard." The tra 
ditionally rough road of romance ' 
at its rocky worst in the case of the 
young Marquis de Sainte Foy j n ^ 
charmingly versatile actress-sweet 
heart, Celestine Merioncourt. Nor 1 
the situation aided by the mother f 
the young Marquis, who stalks thru 
the play complete with coach and f 0u * 
and lorgnette! But trust the ingeni 
ous Mr. Franklin to solve the p ro b 
lem. 

"Poor Richard" is going to take 
lot of work all around — from direc 
tor, cast, costumes, and set construe 
tors. We're sure you can do it, Jun 
iors, so here's wishing you good luck

I.R.C. Organizes For 
Year With New 
Members 

The International Relations Club 
held its first meeting of the year on 
Monday night in the basement of the 
library. At this time new members 
were admitted, plans for the year out- 
lined, and applicants for admission 
into the cabinet determined. 

President Jane Ehrhart includes 
Irene Barber, William Reed, Dorothy 
Brine, and Katherine Dunkle as the 
new members of the club while the 
cabinet members will be selected from 
those submitting the best papers. 
Work was begun on the club scrap- 
book. The I. R. C. cabinet will meet 
the first Monday, and the club the 
third Monday of every month. 



Program and Dance Will 
Climax Fall Activities 

The "rushing season" of our four 
campus societies will be culminated 
Friday evening, November 8, by the 
four society joint session. Beginning 
at 8 o'clock in Engle Hall with a pro- 
gram, the plans include a dance in 
the Alumni Gymnasium in the latter 
part of the evening. 

The initial program in the chapel 
will include contributions by each of 
the societies. After words of welcome 
from the several presidents, each 
group will presents its own short pro- 
gram. The plans for these are care- 
fully guarded so that they will be a 
surprise. 

Following this entertainment danc- 
ing to the music of the new campus 
orchestra will be open to all, stag or 
drag, in the Annville High School 
Gymnasium. This orchestra was or- 
ganized specifically to make this ses- 
sion a success. It has practiced as a 
group so that they will be in top 
form. New music has been obtained 
for them by the literary societies. 

This social event having brought 
the "rushing season" to a close, the 
freshmen and new students will be 
asked to pledge themselves to the so- 
ciety of their choice. On Tuesday, 
November 12, cards will be furnished 
in order that they may designate 
which group they wish to join. More 
specific instructions for the signing 
of pledges will be furnished by notice 
on the bulletin board.

This Saturday will mark the initial 
appearance of the combined Lebanon 
Valley College Girl's and Boy's Bands 
at the Upsala game. In the past, only 
the Boys' Band has drilled, but for the 
past two weeks the two groups have 
been practicing together. Under the 
capable and efficient leadership of the 
drum major, Edward McFerren, the 
72 piece band will present new drills 
and routines. The group will also go 
to Reading the following Saturday for 
the game with our traditional rivals,

The Chemistry Club will hold its 
first meeting of the year this even-

lecture room. This evening the officers 
elected at the final meeting of last 
year, Robert Rapp, president; Robert 
Breen, Vice president; and Russel 
Horst, Secretary and treasurer, will 
assume their respective positions. 

Through the generosity of the Beth- 
lehem Steel Company, a sound motion 
picture will be shown entitled "Stain- 
less Steel." Russel Horst will con- 
clude the program by delivering a 
talk on "Soilless Agriculture." This 
talk will be based upon his experi- 
ences and experiments this summer 
in raising potatoes, mints, and other 
plants by this method. 



THE TRAIL OF CONRAD WEISER 



People living in Lebanon Valley, 
between the Schuylkill and the Sus- 
quehanna, take a natural pride in 
Conrad Weiser. He was the best thing 
our valley has yet produced: not on- 
ly a great Pennsylvanian, but one 
of the founders of the nation. He 
pointed the way to the West, and 
conducted a treaty on the Ohio be- 
fore Virginia had advanced into that 
region. Though he did not live to see 
the Revolution, he helped the colon- 
ies on the way to union, and his work 
as an ambassador to the Six Nations 
Indians gave the English an advan- 



by Dr. Paul A. W. Wallace 

tage that determined the outcome of 
the French and Indian War and 
cleared the way for a settlement on 
this continent of the problems in- 
volved in the old colonial system. 

In the early 1740's, the provinces 
of New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, 
and Maryland honored him as the 
greatest of Indian agents. The Indi- 
ans of the Six Nations (the Iroquois) 
recognized him as something more. 
His energy, far-sightedness, and in- 
tegrity won for him the title of 
Tarachiawagon, the Holder of the 
Heavens — a title they had hitherto 



reserved for their chief deity. 

After his death, the Indians con- 
tinued to revere him, and (according 
to tradition) some of the stones at 
the foot of his grave at Weiser Park 
near Womelsdorf mark the graves of 
chiefs who desired that their last rest- 
ing place should be with him. But 
the whitemen soon forgot him. The 
struggle of the Revolution almost 
wiped out the memory of those whose 
work had been done before.

ser, holding a pivotal position in the

ules Full Program 
For Visiting Dads 

Game and Banquet on 
Schedule for Sat. 

This coming Saturday, November 
9, the seventh annual Dad's Day will 
be held. L. V. C. will play host to a 
group of dads who will visit the cam- 
pus in order to become acquainted 
with their sons' environment and to 
spend the day with them. 

Sponsored by the Young Men's 
Christian Association, the annual af- 
fair is held to promote good fellow- 
ship and a spirit of social unity. Ev- 
ery fellow is requested to have some 
member of his family on campus with 
him. If it will be impossible for his 
father to attend, he may secure an- 
other one of his male relations for 
the day. 

No formal program will be ar- 
ranged for Saturday morning. Every 
son will have the honor of introduc- 
ing his father to other sons and their 
fathers. Then, all the dads have the 
privilege of visiting the various cam- 
pus buildings. The science laborator- 
ies will be open for their inspection. 
Lunch will be served in the dining 
hall for the paternal visitors at the 
regular time. 

The main event of the afternoon 
will be Upsala-Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege football game to be played at 
the Lebanon High School Stadium, 
Seventh and Church Streets, Leba- 
non. The opening kick-off is scheduled 
for two p. m. 

After the game the dads will re- 
turn to campus to be honored at a 
banquet in the dining hall at six p,

Green Blotter Club Issues 
Call For New Members 

by Keeper-of -Word-Horde 

The Green Blotter Club, one of the 
few selective clubs on campus, extends 
its yearly invitation to new members. 
There are six vacancies at the present 
time; and there is room in the club 
for one senior student, one sophomore 
student, and four freshmen. To apply 
for membership anyone of those el- 
igible may submit an original man- 
uscript of poetry or prose to Dr. 
Struble, adviser, Floda Trout, presi- 
dent, or any club member before Nov- 
ember 26. 

From those who try-out, the six who 
seem most eligible by the quality of 
their writing will become members of 
the Green Blotter Club. With the ob- 
ject in view of furthering literary 
thinking and encouraging all those 
who are interested in writing, the club 
holds monthly meetings at which mem- 
bers are privileged to read any piece 
of work, have it criticized, and most 
of all gain constructive aid. Up to this 
time, the group has published an an- 
nual supplement to La Vie, but this 
year it has adopted the policy of pub- 
lishing articles in the paper through- 
out the year with the supplement con- 
taining the best of the year's work. A 
friendly group, the club is anxious to 
absorb "fresh" ink-spots.

dad's day 

Welcome, Dads, to Lebanon Valley 
College Campus! It is with the great 
est of pleasure that La Vie Colleg 
ienne greets you. We hope that your 
visit here will be most enjoyable and 
profitable. We advise you to take 
every opportunity to see college life, 
visit the various buildings, attend the 
game, and enjoy the friendship of the 
fellows. And a word to all the fel 
lows — we suggest you give your fath 
er an opportunity to find out for him 
self how easy it is to spend money, 
perhaps he will be more generous in 
the future. 



defeat 



The most exciting presidential 
election since the World War period 
is now history. The American peo- 
ple have made their choice for pres- 
ident by re-electing Franklin D. 
Roosevelt. La Vie Collegienne along 
with most of the other college publi- 
cations, discovers itself on the side 
of the losers. But we do not consider 
ourselves defeated. Now is the time 
to fight harder than ever for the pres- 
ervation of democracy. Cooperate in 
as far as your democratic principles 
are concerned but do not concede to 
policies which tend to undermine the 
American way of life. 




Comments overheard on the morn- 
ing of Wednesday, November 6th, us- 
ually referred to as "the morning af- 
ter." 

HAROLD MAURER— The wrong 
man won! 

CARPY RUTHERFORD— Skip it! 

PROF. ULLERY— I don't feel so 
good. I can't understand how people 
think. 

DAVE SPITTAL — I refuse to com- 
mit myself! 

MARTHA DAVIES— I feel like the 
weather — stormy ! 

CHARLES MILLER — As Flynn 
says, as Farley says, we're Americans 
first. 

FRANK SHENK— There's nothing 
we can do about it! 

MARTHA JANE KOONTZ — I'm 
in mourning for democracy! 

RUTH GRAYBILL — The people 
elected Roosevelt, so they must stick 
by him. , 

DR. LYNCH— Liberty is dead! 

ALEX RAKOW— Hello, fellow sub- 
jects ! 

FRITZ MILLER— Terrible! 
MAURIE ERDMAN— Heil, Roose- 
velt! 

JANE EHRHART— Cheer up! The 
worst is yet to come! 



Dutching It 

with Ira Asaph 

After a two week tour of our fair 
country to size up the political situa- 
tion Ira returns to report on election 
night. And it's going to be a long 
night for this little rag cannot be put 
to bed till the final reports are in 
Speaking of politics, there are prob 
ably more specimens of pseudo-Repub- 
licans running around loose on cam 
pus than on any other comparable 
area in the U. S. A. It's all a mat 
ter of self-defense, for with such Rep. 
rooters as Dressier and Erdman en 
gineering the SOCIETY OF LEBA 
NON VALLEY ELEPHANTS it's 
easier to wear a Willkie button than 
a black eye. But more of this anon. 

One person we can always count on 
for a laugh is Little Eva, librarian 
and history student extraordinaire. 
Showing more than the usual signs of 
life and industry, Eva spent the great 
majority of Saturday afternoon dig- 
ging among the musty volumes of 
Harrisburg's library in quest of a his- 
tory reference that would contribute 
something new and different to Fritz's 
class. Not until Monday night, and 
then only with the assistance of 
Prof. Ehrhart, was it discovered that 
Eva's indefatigable research had un- 
earthed the very textbook the rest of 
the class has been using for lo, these 
many weeks. 

Braving the dangers of trespassing 
in the territory of our cohort, Alf 
Noise, Ira leers with interest upon 
the doings of Betty Anne, Bob, and 
interloper Steele. There's nothing 
more tantalizing than a good triangle, 
but we suspect that B. A.'s connec- 
tions with Jersey's white hope are 
nothing more than motherly. 

The above-mentioned geometric fig- 
ure is breaking out all over the place 
in mildly epidemic proportions. Peggy 
is doing all right for herself with 
both Frosh Chambers and Free-Lanc- 
er Dresel hanging around, while the 
attraction for Owens and Staley down 
South Hall way is a petite red head. 
Chances are there is still a missing 
angle in that situation. 

Reports from Saturday's game 
down in the terrapin state lead us to 
suggest that Jerry take eleven good 
mudders along the next time he ven- 
tures below the Mason Dixon. Mary- 
land has been Democratic and wet 
from way back. 

And speaking of football reminds 
us that at any home game a certain 
frosh pretty is to be seen, wide-eyed 
and adoring in the stands while 
Kuhnie is out there dashing around 
madly for alma mater and Jo Anne. 
Methinks Jo has a full-time job on 
her hands. 

Near havoc in the faculty nook of 
the dining hall the other evening 
when pinch-hitting waiter, Don Bart- 
ley tripped over Prof. Freeland's ped- 
al extremeties. The general concen- 
sus of opinion seemed to be that the 
fault lay in Prof.'s feet, not Don's. 
We are glad though to find a faculty 
member so long on understanding. 

Comes the day after the night be- 
fore, and it's fascinating to note the 
various and sundry (Ira feels trite 
this morning) attitudes to be found. 
Most noticeable of all is the enormous 
increase in Roosevelt fans that the 
night has brought forth. It almost 
leads Ira to believe that the Blue Ea- 
gle itself was incubated by the dark 
of the moon and propagates its kind 
under the same conditions. The few 
die-hards who remain are to be seen 
wearily raising right arms and greet- 
ing their confreres with a discourag- 
ed "Sig Heil."

The Highwayers 

by Alf Noise 

As the campus trees cast away their 
colored leaves and make more work 
for "Wit" and Bert, we are inclined 
to believe that those "Injun" Summer 
days are now in the wigwam of the 
past. The tables beneath the linden 
are only reserved for the "Polar Bear 
Club" members, as all the other he 
and she bears seek the shelter of their 
dens. 

Chemistry assistants are so nice 
and kind and sweet to those innocent 
lumps of sucrose who appear in their 
'lab" sections. Now it seems that 
Brother Hess fell heir to one of those 
extra populated sections, and Broth- 
ers Breen and Rapp believe in shar- 
ing the wealth. But the "frosh" lady 
chemists are quite attached to their 
blond assistant Hess, and observation 
has it that they stay hours after oth- 
ers have gone to hear the molecular 
words that flow from his store of 
knowledge. (More later — personal in- 
vestigation pending.) 

Peering within the Tyrone realms, 
we find, besides a "smelly" mess of 
dogfish sharks, that broad-shouldered 
and high-stepping drum major, 
"Mac." No, he has not changed his 
course — that is his course of study — 
but his interest. Certainly we have 
hundreds of interesting specimens that 
would attract attention but it "ain't" 
"stuff" in jars or mounts that brings 
"Mac" to the top floor. If you really 
want to know, ask Margie, the co-ed 
from the chocolate estate. 

If the girls continue in their ways, 
"Jerry" and "Mike" can have prac- 
tice down South Hall way. Klopp, 
Smith, and Mehaffey always were the 
typical "Jane College girls" (sisters 
to Joe College); so why should they 
not get themselves a football hero? 
But wait! Come! come! Grade, we 
thought your heart belonged to "Mu- 
berg?" Don't tell me you and "Dickie- 
boy" had a skirmish? 

Sammy Grimm, or "Little Soggy," 
is a hard working man and thus a 
rare piece of smiling face on the turf. 
But if you know where he lives, you 
are justified in asking why he turns 
up College Avenue each day he returns 
from work? Don't tell me that a lass 
has taken the sweet out of your 
"Home Sweet Home?" 



The Trail of 
Conrad Weiser 



{Continued from Page 1) 



affairs of the colonial governments, 
thought it necessary to keep a care- 
ful record of all his activities. But 
after his death his correspondence 
and journals became scattered. His 
descendants knew in a general way 
that he had been an important man, 
and they preserved his papers; but 
no attempt was made to keep them 
together. In consequence his papers 
have been scattered all over the coun- 
try, wherever the Weisers (he has 
left ten or fifteen thousand descend- 
ants) have settled, from Massachu- 
setts to Virginia, Michigan, Wiscon- 
sin, California. Traditions have grown 
up about his career, and the dispersal 
of his papers has made it difficult to 
find the truth behind the legends. 

Nothing could be more exciting than 
the attempt to put Humpty Dumpty 
together again: to find and make 
transcripts of the enormous mass of 
Weiser manuscripts still in existence, 
and out of them to shape a coherent 
story of his colorful life. The State 
Archives at Harrisburg and the His- 
torical Society of Pennsylvania have 
both large collections of Weiser mate- 
rial. The Library of Congress, tha 
Historical Society of Berks County, 
and many local libraries have some 
good things. Private individuals have 
a letter here, a journal there. The re- 
sponse has been most generous wher- 
ever I have turned for help. 

The pieces are coming together, 
and as they come the effect is star- 
tling. It seems impossible that any one 
man should have done so much and 
at the same time have written so fully 
and so well about it. It is as though 
Pepys and Defoe had entered Daniel 
Boone's body. If it took Bacon to 
write Shakespeare (as the Baconians 
tell us) , perhaps Bacon wrote Weiser 
— in which case the Chancellor was 
not only a Weiser, but also a better 
man than we took him to be in Eng- 
lish 26. 

Putting Weiser together is not a 
sedentary job. Weiser was one of 
the great travellers of his time, and 
a biographer who would see what he 
saw must burn up the miles. Conrad 
left Wurtemberg when he was twelve 
years old, spent six months in Queen 
Anne's London, sailed to New York, 
spent two years at Livingston Manor

loving when you have to read y 0U] , 
little sweet nothings to your l 0Ve( j 
one. But to add to this handicap th e 
play is further hampered by the f ac 
tion which looks at Monday as the 
start of a new week.— Yes, We>r * 
speaking of the anatomy students fa 
the cast. You see, every Monday af- 
ternoon instructions for the week are 
placed on the board in lab. So thes 
industrious Thesbians, not to be de 
layed by a little thing like play prac ^ 
tice brought their dogfiish to rehear- 
sal, and all the meaty speeches of 
Benjamin Franklin were overshad- 
owed by the slight odor of dogfish 
a la formaldehyde.— Assistant direc- 
tness Foster really has been having 
her hands full trying to pinch hit for 
the cast members who have other en- 
gagements on Monday evenings.— But 
above all this confusion and handi- 
cap, the thing that was the most sur- 
prising was that "Poor Richard" al- 
ready shows great promise, so keep 
your eye on it. Among the shining 
lights who were present on Monday, 
we list Lee Schreiber who is quite new 
to our stage, but who seems to be an 
old hand at this business of acting; 
Ralph Shay, who has been ably cast 
as Franklin; Mary Louise Clark, who 
has finally come into her own on cam- 
pus after several years away from 
the stage ; Louise Boger, who is a vet- 
eran actress at L. V. C; Carl Sherk, 
who is as interested in acting as he is 
in dogfish ; and Betty Foster, who is 
assisting Dr. Struble as there are two 
plays in pi-oduction at once. We 
would stake our last cent (if we had 
one) that this Junior play is going to 
be something new and is going to 
have an unprecedented success in 
spite of the ancient jinx usually ac- 
companying this play. 

"The Importance of Being Earnest" 
is well under way and is nearing per- 
fection rapidly. But as in the case of 
the Junior play, this one is being 
hampered by the little group who look 
at Monday as the end of a week-end. 
For further reference, see Mr. David 
Gockley, who is becoming quite adept 
at talking in his sleep as the first re- 
hearsal this week showed.— -And then 
we have the annual onslaught of the 
leading lady's asthma to make things 
even more exciting. — But seriously* 
this play is shaping up into something 
which will surprise the anti-Wilde 1* 
V. C.-ers. Ever since this play 
selected there has been considejab e 
doubt as to the advisability o f * [ 
choice. But if rehearsals are aitf * 
dication we are sure that you will » 
it. Among the main attractions 
this play may we list: the strike 
contrast between Jane Baker's an ^ 
len Ruppersberger's voices, ^^jjf. 
Jane Koontz in the role of a s . }I 
necked doting mother, Dave Goc • 
in the engagement scene, ana v ^, 
Sherk and Dave Spittal in 
commendable parts. So come on, S

L. V- C. Defeats Mountaineers 

Second Victory Of Year Scored 

Lebanon Valley chalked up its second victory of the season by defeating 
tubborn and alert Blue Ridge College eleven on the latter's "field" in New 
irndsor> Maryland, on Saturday by a score of 6-0. The field was an ocean of 
a from goal line to goal line. There were two features of the Blue Ridge 
'^diron that are not to be overlooked, to wit: — one could go swimming in 
° U end zone in a more appropriate season of the year, while hunters could 
°^ off the little bunnies to their heart's content in the other section of

The backs no sooner got beyond 
1 line of scrimmage until they were 

kled. Blocking downfield was ex- 
taC mely difficult due to the unsteady 
Ming on the rain-soaked terrain. 
However, the Blue and White took ad- 

antage of the same situation to hold 
Blue Ridge backs to small gains 
all afternoon. 

Lebanon Valley took possession of 
the ball deep in its own territory 
fter Blue Ridge failed to gain fol- 
lowing the kick-off. Failing to gain 
on three attempts the Dutchmen kick- 
ed to the Maryland team. A punting 
du el was witnessed in this quarter 
with Lebanon Valley assuming the 
superiority. This edge was nullified 
when a Valley back fumbled in mid- 
field late in the quarter after the 
Frockmen had begun to wade into the 
home team. 

The Blue and White turned on the 
heat in the early part of the next 
period and drove from their own 39 
to the goal line on a succession of 
reverses, spinners, and power thrusts 
at the line only with a completed pass 
to Dorazio by Kuhn. The latter led 
the drive and scored on a reverse from 
Schillo from the six yard line. The 
pass from center was muffed and the 
Valley failed to convert. 

Both teams played conservative ball 
in the remainder of the quarter with 
the Dutchmen again driving into Blue 
Ridge territory. Here again the thrust 
was halted by the sturdy defensive 
play of the home team's forward wall. 

The starting team had remained in- 
tact throughout the first half and a- 
gain took the field with the exception 
°f Schillo who was replaced by Hoff- 
meister. The latter called signals until

The reverse plays of the Valley 
a ?ain worked well to give them a

and Kuhn teamed up in the L. V. 
backfield to lead the attack in the 
fourth period until a fumbled punt 
by the Blue and White safety man 
gave the home team possession of the 
ball on its own 32. 

At this stage of the game the men 
on white stepped in and allowed the 
Blue Ridge outfit to penetrate to the 
L. V. 12 yard line. A penalty was call- 
ed on the Dutchmen fori running into 
the kicker on fourth down to give the 
homesters the ball in midfield for their 
only first down of the game at that 
point. Attempts at the line failed and 
the Blue Ridge quarterback called a 
series of passes that netted three 
first downs in succession. 

Again the magistrates stepped in 
when the attack was bottled up to give 
the home team a "first down." The 
ball was on the L. V. 20, first down. 
Gabrusky tossed a back for a 9 yard 
loss while attempting to pass. A pass 
on the second down fell incomplete. 
Russo was called for both defensive 
holding and unnecessary roughness. 
This penalty would bring the ball to 
the L. V. 14. Despite the protest of 
Captain Bosnyak, one of the officials 
decreed a first down for the Blue 
Ridge eleven on the argument that a 
"first down is always given to the of-

The hurried passers for the Blue

game neared its end. Kuhn moved the

for the Dutchmen as the ball game

iJ fie Spectator

It was our good fortune, or misfortune, last week-end to invade the 
wilds of Northern Maryland and when there, to watch our Alma Mater ride 
rough-shod over the Blue Ridge Mountaineers. The score board read 6-0. 
Sorry, there was no score board. Rather we had to resort to some difficult 
mental computations to arrive at that result. 

But that's only half the story. As we watched our boys trot onto the 
abbreviated gridiron in their white jerseys, a moan escaped from our lips. 
The field was a sea of mud from one end to the other. It must double for 
a swimming pool in the spring. Incidentally, the jerseys weren't white very 
long. 

Then came the crowd. There must have been at least one hundred people 
there. They cheered mightily and lustily, their shouts sounding like echoes. 
The few Valleyites present made as much noise as the whole aggregation 
of hosts. The crowd even got to the point where it tried to help its play- 
ers. On one occasion a lad in a white cap stood on the side lines imparting 
information direct from the coach to a player on the field. 

We also came across the typical L. V. C. luck — bad officials. They tried 
hard to hand the home team a score near the end of the game, calling three 
penalties in a row, but even then they couldn't earn a score. They called a 
penalty on Morrill for running into the kicker, when Joe wasn't even within 
five yards of the punter. Again, they got in an argument among themsel- 
ves, one official stepping off 15 yards after the first had marked off 5 
yards. 

All in all it was a very educational journey not only for us, but for the 
football squad too. We will make this prediction, that that was the last 
trip a Blue and White team will make to those "thar" parts. 

This week we play an Upsala team about whom we know very little. 
Their record isn't too impressive, but that can't be used as a guide. P. M. C. 
didn't have a successful season either until they met the Valley. Figure it? 
out for yourself, we can't. We know that Coach Frock will leave nothing 
undone in an effort to make the Dutchmen look good on Dad's Day. 

We noticed on the campus some intensive touch football going on. A» 
least it starts as touch football, but when it's over nobody knows what's 
going on. Familiar figures are Mease, Grow, and Bentzel, kingpins of the 
second floor. 

We noticed down at Blue Ridge that Coach Frock has developed a couple 
sixty minute men. Captain Bosnyak has been bolstering up the line contin- 
ually. Grabusky has added much needed strength to the terminals. Staley is 
usually playing the full time except when he's hurt. Rakow has filled Gra- 
busky's spot at center. In the backfield, Matala has been playing the whole 
game and doing quite an efficient job at that. His kicking on Saturday was 
an important factor in keeping the Mountaineers back on their heels in the 
second half. 

The season is almost over, and the big game is drawing near. It follows 
the Upsala game. Everybody is getting keyed up to let loose on the fateful 
day. If we beat Albright, our season is a success; if we lose, it's a failure 
despite other victories. May we at this time suggest that the student body 
get a little more pep. We've listened to our Friday morning so-called pep 
sessions. They don't even arouse the students, how can they ever inspire 
that do or die spirit that they say a team should have. Think it over some 
time.

The Trail of 
Conrad Weiser 



(Continued from Page 2) 



(about one hundred miles up the Hud- 
son) and a winter at Schenectady. 
For the next sixteen years he lived 
in the Schoharie Valley among the 
northern reaches of the Catskills, and 
travelled with the Mohawks of the 
neighborhood over to the Susquehanna 
and as far down as Otseningo (Bing- 
hamton, N. Y.). 

Even when he came to Pennsylva- 
nia, settled on his farm at what is 
now Womlesdorf, and had the care 
of his family, crops, horses, cattle, 
and the cattle of his neighbors (he 
was county ranger), his travelling 
days were not over. He was constant- 
ly called to Philadelphia on govern- 
ment business. Even during that 
strange period when he tried to es- 
cape sectarian quarrels by joining the 
Brethren at Ephrata, he was often 
called out to attend Indian treaties 
and go on embassies to distant tribes. 

To follow the trail he took in 1737 
to Onondago (Syracuse), we travel 
from Womelsdorf over the Blue 
Mountains to Sunbury, thence along 
the Susquehanna to Montoursville, 
north over the hills to the Lycoming 
Valley, east to the Susquehanna again 
near Towands, north to Athens and 
so on to Syracuse. It is as glorious a 
drive as our commonwealth can offer. 
To follow hjm to the Ohio is to thread 
a maze of mountains not far north 
of the new Super Highway. The old 
Allegheny Trail had discovered cracks 
in the mountain wall, and doubled 
about ingeniously to get past the 
hills, range after range, without 
climbing. 

In a word, to trail Conrad Weiser 
in America, means to ascend the Hud- 
son by boat and road, to criss-cross 
the Catskills (there are good motor 
roads that follow most of the old In- 
dian paths), to cross the Alleghenies 
to Pittsburgh and beyond, to drive 
along the banks of the Mohawk River 
following the so-called Ambassadors' 
Road which went from tribe to tribe 
of the Six Nations, and to make the 
trip by road and river to Williams- 
burg, Va. 

In addition to being a great tra 
veller, Conrad Weiser was a county 
judge (President Judge of Berks 
County), colonel of a battalion on ac- 
tive service, a linguist, a farmer, a 
tanner, a county ranger, a writer for 
the publication of Benjamin Frank- 
lin and Christopher Sauer. In reli-

gion he was, first and last, a Luther- 
an. In between whiles he was a Sev- 
enth Day German Baptist and a priest 
of the Order of Melchizedek at Eph- 
rata. He was a promoter of Mora- 
vian missions, a patron of the Re- 
formed Church in Reading, and an 
enthusiast for the Indian way of life 
which in his opinion kept the essen- 
tials of democracy and religion — and 
kept them both without any frills. 

He was deeply religious. It was not 
"backsliding" that caused his changes, 
but forward-looking. All his life he 
searched for an evangelical church 
which kept its enthusiasm unsullied 
by the bitterness of sectarianism. He 
would have found himself at home 
among the United Brethren in Christ, 
but our church was not founded till 
after his death.

Dad's Enj oy Day 
On L. V, Campus 

75 Fathers Join Sons 

In Sample of Campus Life 

by Robert Ness 

There were more than fifty happy 
fathers last Saturday who enjoyed 
a banquet with their sons in the 
North Hall dining room, yet there 
were an equal number of sons who 
were just as happy to have their dads 
with them. The banquet climaxed a 
holiday, successful even to the extent 
of the football score. Through the 
cooperation of the Y. M. C. A. and 
the Athletic Association, fifty dormi- 
tory students' fathers and twenty-five 
day students' fathers were the guests 
at the seventh annual Dad's Day foot- 
ball game played last Saturday in 
Lebanon. 

While the fathers were here, they 
were able to meet their sons' friends 
and to associate again with the ideal 
environment for men only — to gather 
in the well-known "bull session." 

At 6:00 P. M. the fathers and sons 
streamed into the dining room after 
their intimate gathering in the crowd- 
ed hallway during the preceding half 
hour. At every table beside the name 
card of each dad was an L. V. C. ash- 
tray for their use then as well as for 
a remembrance to be taken home la- 
ter.

Dutchmen To 
Battle Rivals 

L.V. Will Attempt 
To Break Jinx 

The Flying Dutchmen of Lebanon 
Valley will be endeavoring to obtain 
its fourth victory in seven starts this 
year when meeting the Lions of Al- 
bright College on the latter's grid- 
iron on Saturday. The Dietzmen have 
broken even in eight games they have 
played this year. The Albright ag- 
gregation holds the edge in the series 
between the two schools. The Reading 
institution has won 10, lost 9, and 
has been tied twice in its 22 meetings 
with the Valley. 

Albright opened its season with a 
27-6 victory over a weak Kutztown 
Teachers College eleven. Moravian 
then measured Albright with a 9-0 
defeat. The Lions came back in the 
next game to drop Muhlenberg in a 
surprise upset by a score of 14-3. The 
Albright outfit tasted victory on the 
succeeding Saturday with a 19-0 drub- 
bing of the Upsala Vikings. Catawba 
eked out a victory over the Lions in 
their next contest by a 7-6 score. West 
Chester followed the example of Ca- 
tawba and layed the mighty Lion low 
in a thriller. 

Undefeated F. and M. welcomed the 
Albright eleven to Lancaster on the 
following weekend and proceeded to 
shellack the visitor by a 28-7 score. 
Albright returned to the win column

FOR DORMITORY STUDENTS 
ONLY 

College students have the reputa- 
tion for being chronic gripers, and 
Lebanon Valleyites are certainly no 
exceptions. Sometimes we are known 
to down everything just for the sake 
of hearing ourselves talk. However, in 
nine cases out of ten, or as is it in our 
case, ninety-nine cases out of a hun- 
dred, we are perfectly justified in pro- 
testing against certain unfavorable 
conditions found in existence at Leb- 
anon Valley College. To refresh your 
memories (how could you ever for- 
get?) here is a list of some of the 
favorite gripes: 

The professors. 
Examinations. 
8:00 classes. 
Chapel. 

Lack of a gymnasium. 
Inadequate library facilities. 
Unnecessary rules. 

Our chief objection to dormitory 
life is the FOOD. Ever since the 
founding of the school, L. V.-ers have 
been graduating with diplomas and 
dyspepsia. Knowing that we pay 
enough to receive better meals, we 
interviewed one of the administrative 
officials to discover the difference be- 
tween the income and expenses of the 
dining hall. The following astonish- 
evidence was uncovered: For the 
school year 1939-1940 the amount re- 
ceived for meals was $44,445.17, while 
the expenses of the dining hall, in- 
cluding the food, laundry, gas, light, 
repairs, salaries and wages, telephone, 
operating supplies, repairs, and water 
amounted to $35,211.16. Certainly 
something can be done with $9,234.01 
to improve the meals. 

One year's profit could more than 
eradicate the basis of the difficulty, 
our inadequate out-moded kitchen 
equipment, supplying at the same time 
facilities for the long-desired cafe- 
teria breakfast. 

Nine thousand dollars for black ink 
should mean improved quality of food 
and varied menus, along with increas- 
ed kitchen and waiter forces to pro- 
vide appetizing fare and the minimum 
decencies of service. A college educa- 
tion should raise our standards of liv- 
ing. We were trained to eat like hu- 
man beings at home, and had hoped 
to continue the worthy habit during 
our college careers. We are obviously 
paying a sufficient amount for that 
privilege; we are demanding reason- 
able returns. 




jazz notes 

by Maurie Erdman 

This week let's digest a few facts on a fast rising orchestra led by Al- 
vino Rey. 

The band has a style of swing that seems to strike a happy medium 
between Miller and Dorsey. The set-up includes four saxes, three trumpets, 
two trombones and four rhythm. The reeds are deep and smooth, the brass 
rich and lazy and the arrangements tricky and different. Individually the 
band has a good ride man in each section. 

Rey himself ably holds down the guitar post with as hot a set of 
strings as you're likely to find among white men. On smooth music the 
guLar adds a background that makes every piece a bit different from the 
runs by other orchestras. The only catch is that the alligator by the speaker 
gets a trifle sick of it after a while. Diminishing utility is what they call 
it up in room 18. 

One of the high spots of his broadcasts is the group of young ladies 
singing wuh him, the four King Sisters. These young ladies definitely es- 
tablish themselves among top-notchers by taking up where the other groups 
of this class have left off. Teaming up for sizzling vocals on "Tiger Rag" 
the Sisters cool off to some su — mooth stuff on "I'll Get Bye" (P'way joke 
box at present). Devant and Alice take the spot for solo songs and you'll 
get a thrill if you go for females on slow vocals — and who doesn't? 

For one example of the band biting off a hot piece listen for the an- 
cient and still loved "St. Louis Blues." Rey puts in the boogie theme of 
'Yancey Special" but uses a bass instead of a piano. For smooth, hot swing 
wiin a boogie beat hold tight the next time you hear them announce this 
i'avorite. 

"Moonlight On The Ganges" provides the theme for a fifteen minute 
program Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings at 6:30 from the Terrace 
Koora of the Ho.el Syracuse in Syracuse, N. Y. The station is WJZ. See 
you then. 



Stage Whispers 

Well, here it is the day before the Wig and Buckle production, and to- 
night is the full-dress rehearsal for this vehicle. And it will really be an 
event of some importance, because the first play of the year is always the 
most popular one. Of course, by this time everybody knows just about all 
their parts, and Doctor Struble has heard the play so often that he can 
prompt without a book.— But now for a brief review of the latest develop- 
ments in the characters themselves.— Dave Gockley has come to the front 
surprisingly since the last rehearsal, perhaps due to the fact that he is 
more wide awake. The first speechlessness ihat he experienced after kiss- 
ing the heroine has vanished, and now he comes out of that only too pleas- 
ant ordeal, and continues bravely with his lines.— The missing butler has fin- 
ally been supplied by Bob Mandle, the doctor of the Home-coming play. Now 
we will see what will happen when this gentleman, so skilled in the manly 
art of AD LIB, becomes an English butler.— But one of the most outstand- 
ing performances of the rehearsals viewed was Robert Mays in the role 
of Dave Gockley's butler. He is, without a doubt the ideal butler, and that 
is straight from the shoulder.— Then there is that priceless comedy team, 
Dennis Shirk as the minister and Betty Minnich as the governess. They make 
an excellent pair, but they could be starred in their own rights, too.— Jane 
Baker and Ellen Ruppersberger have continued to uphold the standards which 
they have set for themselves in previous rehearsals; very convincing and 
very charming young ladies.— Martha Jane Koontz as the dowager is really 
doing a very fine bit of work; we were especially impressed by the way in 
which she portrayed her varying moods.— Dave Spittal, as the guardian of 
Cecily, has finally come around to the point where he puts ALL the re- 
quired action into the scene, although we hear that at first he was a little 
backward about doing so.— And so, another play is nearing completion, and 
on Friday night we will see all of you in Engle Hall at "THE IMPORTANCE 
OF BEING EARNEST." 

CURTAIN. 



The Highwayers 

by Alf Noise 

As your reporter pens his weekly 
line of propaganda he can not help 
but think that the role of Pagliacci 
is being duplicated. In short, dear 
readers to laugh when one mourns 
is not solely operatic. Between blue 
booWs a' la carte, mid-night brain 
primers, and the haunting results of 
the fatal election returns, there is 
a justification for the existence of a 
campus "drizzle-puss." 

The day after the elephant got his 
tail pulled, one found the "den" a 
dwelling of few smiling faces. The 
morning greetings were abundantly 
intermingled with the "Nazi high 
sign" and dictatorial expressions in 
the modern vernacular. The Gittlen 
brothers, Kantor and Boltz, were a- 
mong the few fighting donkey riders 
who triumphantly entered the defeat- 
ed chamber. 

"Alf" cast his first vote the "Will- 
kie Way", as some twenty-three mil- 
lion others did also; and he now 
bows his tusks and trunk in subjec- 
tion. We should pledge our faithful 
allegiance to the victor and support 
him in all ventures pro- American. 

Leave it to the women to inflict 
motherly punishment upon their law 
breakers. "Hon" Light and Betty 
Focht, caught talking to men or some- 
thing, were obliged to become "moth- 
er's little helpers" and wash the win- 
dows of South Hall's daytime "chatter 
room." Maybe we could have it ar- 
ranged to have punished lady "dish 
washers" in the chem lab, boys! 

John Hampton, one of those cam- 
era men, Hashes into our picture by 
developing a special romantic roll. 
The little lady that has clicked into 
John's student life is the Lebanon 
Marion Kreider. This lass must cer- 
tainly be photogenic, because Denis 
Sherk, Rubin and Greider await any 
failure of John's developments. 

Political speeches have made your 
reporter question conscious, so bear 
with me as I take that capital boy 
"Zimmy," Frank Stoey, on a tour of 
the campus. Have you seen him at 
South Hall, Yes, frequently. Have 
you seen him at West Hall? Well, I 
did. Have you observed his private 
classes in Chem "lab" or library? Yes, 
and his pupils. Have you seen him 
in his fencing classes. Truthfully, I 
was more interesting in the class. 
Conclusion — "Zimmy" is the dome 
(spelled d-o-p-e) of the capital, but 
"indispensable" to the L. V. C. "ferns." 



Mr. & Mrs. Prof. 



by 

Absent Minded 



At the recent Halloween dance, a 
well-disguised black "mammy" was 
the subject of more than a little con- 
jecture. Even stag-liners who had 
danced with "her" couldn't determine 
the lady's identity. That was one time 
Dr. Light certainly had everybody 
fooled! Maybe clothes do make the 
man, after all. 

Dr. Stonecipher was the butt of a 
most amusing incident. It seems that 
while he was accompanying Verna 
a few mornings ago, one of Annville's 
younger bloods piped up: "Gosh, even 
he runs after the college girls." 

May we introduce you to Dr. Stru- 
ble!, a "make-up" man of no small 
worth. So successful was his work on 
an Annville couple that they came 
through with first prizes — both in 
liquid form. (The lady's was per- 
fume.) 

Miss Gillespie really amazed her 
North "Hollers" by appearing at 
breakfast yesterday morning. That 
was quite a feat — considering the 
fact that she got back from New York 
during the wee small hours (4:15 to 
be exact). And she was still in a 



Letter to the Editor 



TO THE EDITOR: 

For years, in fact ever since J. i 
anon Valley College has been i n 
istence, it has been necessary T~ 
students to go to the post offi Ce 01 
they want to receive what little m •! 
they may receive. And on rainy a 
when they have packages to take f 
or from the postoffice, either the p ac L° 
age or the student is sure to suff^ 
a very impromptu bath. It has bee 
suggested that we have postal delh 
try service, but heretofore nothin 
material has been done. I have talk ^ 
with the officials at the post office 
and they have assured me that tho"! 
would be only too glad to deliver th 
mail at the dorms, for sorting. Of 
course, delivery to the rooms could 
not be done by these worthy officials 
but there are plenty of N. Y a 
students who have been complaining 
that there isn't any work for them to 
do to fill out their time. Can y ou 
think of any logical reason why they 
could not be given N. Y. A. time for 
being reslpofnsiible fdr the delivery 
of the mail? Of course, it would elim- 
inate the daily excursions to the post 
office, but wouldn't it be better to 
dispense with those and keep your 
muscles in condition? If other col- 
leges with student populations of a- 
bout the same size as ours can have 
dormitory delivery, why can't we? 
All that we need is the faculty ap- 
proval and a little cooperation from 
you, and this will be a reality instead 
of a suggestion. 

— Miss Eve 



Dutching |t 

with Ira Asaph 

IF THERE IS ANYTHING IRA 
DETESTS it is the chronic petty gri- 
per, but occasoinally some predestined 
soul gets a violent attack of mental 
cyclonia (brainstorm) which results 
in some constructive and worthwhile 
criticism. At the end of two gruelling 
weeks we heartily endorse this one: 

IRA WOULD LIKE TO SEE: 

Scheduled one hour mid-semester 
exams which would confine this tor- 
tuous period of mental trial and er- 
ror to three days, or a week at most. 
At this time all other hostilities would 
cease. In other words, we would have 
a few days of tests with nothing else 
between our ears but tests. This sug- 
gestion will probably go the hapless 
way of all other Ira ideas, but frank- 



ly profs there will be a fewer 



blith- 



ering idiots and more passing grade 
at mid-term if ye hearken unto 
IRA WOULD BE HAPPIER IF HE 
DIDN'T SEE: 
Verna and Pete, that amatory cou- 
ple of yesteryear, going their sepa r 
ate ways — in unity there waS 
strength. 

The supposedly high-pressure el# 
tioneering employed by a certain m a 
society at the polls on Monday— ' 
shoe fits, put it on. The acquiesce 11 ' 
take-it-on-the-chin attitude of the 1 
ger Board towards decrees emana ' 
from the Central Broadcasting 
fice concerning the gals' private h v Jj 
when everyone agrees (for once) 
they don't make sense. 
IRA WOULD LIKE TO KN0# : 

What alleys Clarkie and Ed 
field frequent — how even ^ aItl ^ elI i- 
la Daugherty broke down Cecil ^ 
perley's four year resistance to ' 
coeds— what happened to the ^ 
busky-Cross combine— why *\ s .'

VIKINGS SUFFER DEFEAT 
AT THE HANDS OF L.V.C. 

Kuhn Tallies 25 Points 



ban» n Valley uncovered a new 
/last Saturday. 
' v ank Kuhn, entrusted with a new 
gtam ped himself, in no uncertain 

r °'nne r > as one °^ ' eac ^ n £ sma ^

C ° twenty-five points, Kuhn quarter- 

^jjed the Dutchmen to a decisive 

S victory over a scrappy Upsala 

eleven. 

Ca ]jing the plays for the first time 



bis 



line for telling gains. The Val- 
other two points were tallied 



career, Frankie amazed coaches 
n d players alike with his uncanny 
3 jioice of plays. To further dismay the 
opposition, he consistently crashed 

their " 
ley's 

Schmalzer and Grabusky rushed 
through to block a kick in the end 
zone which unfortunately bounded 
out of the playing area for an auto- 
matic safety. 

Delaying the start of the game by 
twenty minutes, Upsala dashed unto 
the field in their natty Blue and Gold 
uniforms as a handful of loyal Dads 
loudly cheered. 

Lebanon Valley took the opening 
kick-off and after failing to gain, 
kicked on second down. Upsala fum- 
bled on their own 36 yard line, Matala 
recovering for the Blue and White. 
Kuhn bucked through for three, then 
passed to Grabusky, who battled his 
way to the seven yard line before he 
was downed. Kuhn then slashed off 
tackle for the first score. His attempt 
at the extra point was no good. 

Again taking advantage of loose 
ball handling, the Dutchmen gathered 
in a fumble on the Viking 40 yard 
stripe. Momentarily handicapped by 
an offside penalty, the Blue and White 
advanced to the twenty-six on two 
plays. Kuhn then dashed to the eleven. 



Dorazio earned six and an offside 
penalty put the ball on the one yard 
line, from where Kuhn ploughed over. 
His kick was good. 

Upsala struck back through the air 
and went from their own 17 yard line 
to the goal line. On a 44 yard play, 
Kees passed to Anderson. Stanley 
ploughed through to the 29. Kees 
passed to Mercoglians, then to Ander- 
son who was standing in the end zone, 
for the first score. The kick was good 
by Mercoglians. 

Matala punted out on the eleven 
yard line where, when the Vikings at- 
tempted to punt, Grabusky and 
Schmalzer busted through to earn 
two points for the Blue and White. 
At the half the score read 15-7 in the 
Valley's favor. 

At the start of the second half, the 
Dutchmen were penalized for being 
one minute late, after they had waited 
twenty for the Vikings. Grabusky 
gathered in a fumble on the Blue and 
Gold 39. 

Kuhn passed to Mikilo, Matala 
dashed to the three on a quick play 
and Kuhn pounded over for the score. 
His placement was blocked. 

In the final frame Matala punted 
to Becker after the L. V. attack had 
bogged down. Becker fumbled and 
Hoffmeister recovered on the Upsala 
18 yard line. Kuhn drove to the four 
and then scored in an off tackle smash 
for his final touchdown. 

The Vikings then took the kick-off 
and on the first play scored when Kees 
tossed to Schaeffer on the L. V. 45. 
Schaeffer romped the remaining dis- 
tance for a touchdown. The play was 
good for seventy-five yards, 30 by air 
and 45 by land. Mercoglians place 
kick brought the figures to read 27-14 
at which point they remained.

From the spacious stadium in Lebanon we witnessed a fighting Blue and 
Wlute team take the lead over a visiting Upsala eleven in the first quarter 
J* Saturday to emerge the victor at the final whistle. Running his spec- 
la "ies, the reverse and the off-tackle slant, Frankie Kuhn ate up the yardage

ere * ar enough from the line of scrimmage to enable the L. V. C. backs to 
?ain a * will. Frank, incidently, scored 25 points with 4 touchdowns and an 
Wra point from placement to his credit. 

Matala also did a good job in the backfield for the Valley with his buck- 
jjnhrough guard when called upon to carry the mail. On one occasion

LV. Archery Team 

Wins Meet 

Defeats Dickinson 
By A 1147 -990 Score 

In spite of cold, windy November 
weather, the L. V. C. women archers 
wended their way Dickinsonward to 
compete with the archery team there, 
shooting a Columbia round. 

Although a strong wind, a strange 
range, and a different type of target 
all joined forces to stack the cards 
against the Blue and White archers, 
they came through with flying colors. 
In the final score, Lebanon Valley 
came out one hundred fifty-seven 
points in the lead. The lowest score 
turned in by a Blue and White team- 
ster was higher than three of the 
opponents' scores. A Dickinson girl, 
however, ran up the high score for 
the tournament, leading Espenshade 
by a narrow margin of two points.

with a 7-0 victory over a luckless 
Dickinson squad that outplayed the 
Lions throughout the game. Breen, 
Kuklis, and Spangler teamed up on a 
tricky pass with a lateral tacked on 
to upset the apple-cart for Dickinson 
on the first play of the fourth period 
last week. 

The Blue and White and Albright 
have both suffered defeat by unde- 
feated Moravian and Franklin and 
Marshall. Upsala, the third common 
opponent of the Valley and the Lions, 
was spanked by both teams by lop- 
sided scores. 

Coach Dietz was forced to build a 
new line from end to end this season 
because of graduation of his varsity 
line last June. To replace men like 
Hydock, Thorpe, Snyder, Gustitus, 
McCrann, Cohen and Robson, the 
Lone Star has been grooming Fry- 
stack, Johnson, Rubasin, Coccodrilli, 
Lubin, Plaskonos, and Baum. Most of 
these men saw limited service last 
year, but. are trying hard to maintain 
the standards set by the lines of oth- 
er years at Albright. Dietz was more

Sports t^Jn Shorts 
by betty 

Here is a summary of the girls' 
sports news as told by the various 
sports leaders: 

Margie Kishpaugh, Hockey leader: 

On Saturday the girls' Hockey 
Team will try to break the 2-0 jinx 
that seemed to follow them in the Sus- 
quehanna play day by defeating Al- 
bright girls whom they tied last 
year. The game will be played at Al- 
bright and will precede the tradition- 
al football game. 

The forward line has been practic- 
ing, but Miss Henderson still has to 
vie with late labs or indifference in 
getting the full team out for practice. 

As a preliminary for Saturday's 
game a practice game was held with 
Myerstown girls yesterday afternoon 
in our own field. During this game 
the skills of hockey were stressed; 
the game was not played so much for 
score as for stressing team work and 
pointing out weak points on both 
sides. 

Eleanor Whitmeyer, Basketball leader 
With the hockey season drawing to 
a close, basketball is up and coming. 
This year we expect to have peppy 
inter-mural and inter-class games so 
that every girl can participate. In 
addition to our regular schedule, we 
are looking forward to entertaining 
three other college teams at a basket- 
ball sports day. To have good teams 
we need players, so upper classmen 
and freshmen, let's make this season 
the best one we have ever had. 

jjt ♦ ♦ ♦ i$ £ % 

Lucille Esbenshade, Archery leader: 

The young ladies of Lebanon Valley 
College have decided that with the 
records of Robin Hood and William 
Tell the men have received enough 
honors in archery, so they are going 
to prove that women, too, can handle 
a bow by taking all the honors in a 
contest with the men to be held on 
Friday afternoon, November 15. Come 
on, men, give those girls some compe- 
tition and make them earn their hon- 
ors. We'll see you on the archery 
range at 3:30 on Friday ready to do 
your best in the championship tourna- 
ment. 

On the following Monday the fresh- 
men women will have a match, dorm 
students competing against day stu- 
dents, to be followed on Tuesday by a 
similar match between the women of 
the sophomore class. 

The final fall event will be a 
Thanksgiving novelty shoot on Mon- 
day, November 25, open to all stu- 
dents. All who wish to participate 
must register before Saturday, No- 
vember 23. Don't miss the fun, arch- 
ers.

LA VIE COLLEGIENNE, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 1940 



Pilots Express Views 
After First Solo Hop 

This semester five students from 
L. V. C, Donald Bartley, George 
Bryce, Robert Rapp, Richard Zent- 
meyer, and Joseph Gittlen, have en- 
rolled in the Civilian Pilot Training 
Course. The fact that these students 
are making rapid progress in the 
course is evident in that Bartley, 
Bryce, Gittlen, and Zentmeyer have 
already soloed. 

In an interview with a La Vie re- 
porter these four students made the 
following statements' concerning their 
first solo flights. 

Donald Bartley — It was one of the 
biggest thi'ills of my life. The event 
happened so quickly that I didn't 
realize what I had done until I was 
back on the ground again. It's an 
experience I'll never forget. 

Joseph Gittlen — As soon as the wheels 
of my plane touched the ground, I 
knew I had done it. It made me feel 
good, that I could have been able to 
put away a German Messerschmitt 
or two. 

Richard Zentmeyer — It certainly gave 
me a funny feeling to see the con- 
trol stick up front, which the in- 
structor had previous handled, now 
moving by itself. The sensation of 
taking the plane off the ground was 
terrible, but bringing the plane 
back to earth was a pleasure. 

George Bryce — My first solo flight 
was one of the greatest experiences 
of my life. I can't exactly describe 
the feeling I had when flying the 
plane alone for the first time, but it 
certainly was great. 



Committees Chosen 
For Annual Soph Hop 

At a meeting of the Sophomore 
Class last Tuesday, November 12, 
plans were discussed for the Soph 
Hop which is scheduled to be held on 
January 10 in the Annville High 
School Gymnasium. The following 
committees for the dance were ap- 
pointed by the president, Carl Weid- 
man. 

Program and Tickets — Walter Eb- 
ersole, chairman, Janet Schopf, Mary 
Mehaffy, and Franklin Patschke. 

Decoration and Publicity — Fay 
Brigham, chairman, Genevieve Stans- 
field, Jesse Robertson, David Shaner, 
Robert Ness, Jane Smith, and Herman 
Fritsche. 

Place — George Wilkialis. 

Orchestra — Richard Beckner, chair- 
man, and Elmer Pollock. 

Chaperones — Pauline Keller, chair- 
man, Warren Silliman, Jane Gruber, 
and Richard Phillips.

Internationally 

Speaking. . . 

We have passed the first anniver- 
sary of the outbreak of the present 
world war. This tragic year has made 
still clearer that whatever our per- 
sonal sympathies may be, there is ur- 
gent need of a sane, intelligent un- 
derstanding of what is hapening. The 
work of the International Relations 
Clubs becomes therefore increasingly 
important. The Club books have been 
chosen with this fact in mind. 

GREAT BRITAIN, An Empire in 
Transition by Albert Viton 
Since the attention of the world is 
now centered as never before upon 
Great Britain, there could not be a 
better time in which to read a bal- 
anced review of the development of 
the British Empire, of its successes 
and constructive accomplishments as 
also of its mistakes and failures. This 
is no time to evade facts, and you will 
find them set forth in this book. It's 
readable and reasonable and fair, and 
therefore peculiarly adapted to the 
use of the International Relations 
Clubs. 

AMERICAN POLICY IN THE FAR 
EAST, 1931-1940, by T. A. Bisson 
This careful study gives the record 
of the United States in its dealings 
with the Far East from 1931-40. An 
introductory chapter comments brief- 
ly upon events prior to 1931. It is one 
of an Inquiry Series published by the 
Institute of Pacific Relations of whose 
disinterested research there can be no 
question. In view of the grave situa- 
tion arising in the Far East because 
of British withdrawal, this volume 
should be particularly helpful. 

WHAT GERMANY FORGOT, by 
James T. Shotwell 
There are facts which not only Ger- 
many but we ourselves are likely to 
forget. No treaty in the world has 
ever been so much discussed as the 
Versailles Treaty. As the author 
points out (p. 1), "It is still alive. 
By the strangest of paradoxes the 
more Hitler insists that it is dead, the 
more it remains the issue in the diplo- 
matic war which is just beginning." 
A careful reading of this book — or 
even the single last chapter — will dis- 
close how pertinent the understand- 
ing of past failure is to the study of 
the present tragedy.

timents of every boy present in his 
speech of welcome to the dads. Next, 
Robert Hackman, assisted by Albert 
Morrison at the piano, stirred up the 
pep by leading the group in singing 
such songs as "Smiles," "There's a 
Long, Long Trail A-winding," and 
"Let Me Call You Sweetheart." The 
last one was to be a serenade to the 
girls on the third floor. We hope they 
enjoyed it. Representing the faculty, 
Dr. G. A. Richie, the next speaker, 
gave a few words of welcome to the 
fathers, after which Robert Yannac- 
cone rendered two accordion numbers. 
This was followed with a number of 
vocal selections. 

Dr. A. H. Black, the "petite" math- 
ematics professor, kept clear his rep- 
utation of giving only short, inter- 
esting speeches by duplicating this 
feat after the dinner hour. 

Finally a familiar piece from "Bee- 
thoven" was played by Robert Hack- 
man on his ocarina, followed by a 
"Mozart" selection on his "five and 
dime" whistle. The entertainment was 
brought to a close by the singing of 
the first stanza of the "Alma Mater." 

Later when the fathers left the 
campus, they left with the assurance 
that their sons are being well taken 
care of in a Christian institution. 



The Y. M. C. A. and the Y.

WIG AND BUCKLE PRESENTS 
OSCAR WILDE COMEDY 

Sherk And Minnich Excel In 
"The Importance Of Being Earnest" 



by Margaret Bordwell 

The first play of the season, "The 
Importance of Being Earnest," by Os- 
car Wilde, was given on Friday. The 
audience was surprisingly small, and 
many of the faculty and students were 
missing, leaving a not too inspiring 
audience. In spite of this handicap it 
soon became evident that the play was 
very well cast, and that it was going 
to be a definite success. 

David Spittal surprised his audi- 
ence by becoming more alive than he 
has been in any other play around 
here. At first he gave the appearance 
of being slightly uneasy, but when 
he came to the parts calling for a lit 
tie vehemence he warmed up very 
nicely and from there on did a very 
good piece of work. He showed 
his true mettle in the mourning scene, 
and when he and his "brother" shook 
hands his facial grimaces were very 
convincing. 

David Gockley was exceptionally 
good in his part of the wayward 
friend. Just the right amount of dev- 
iltry, suppressed and otherwise. His 
pantomines during the love scene be- 
tween Spittal and Baker had the au- 
dience in laughter all the time. But it 
has always been a recognized fact 
that the real test of an actor's ability 
ls his reaction in emergencies. So wit-

the straw hat from under him when 
he had accidentally sat on it. And we

Dr. Williams Speaks 
At Special Chapel 

Dr. Stanley B. Williams, Assistant 
Secretary of the Home Mission and 
Church Erection Society, spoke to 
the student body on Wednesday morn- 
ing on the theme, "The State of the 
Nation." 

Dr. Williams is a Kansan through 
and through. He was born in Junc- 
tion City, Kansas, in May, 1888. Fol- 
lowing his graduation from Camp- 
bell College in Holton, Kansas, he 
was ordained a minister in the Kan- 
sas Conference of the Church of the 
United Brethren in Christ. He has 
served in Eskridge, Topeka, Green, 
Greenleaf, Beloit, Parsons and Kan- 
sas City. It was from the Kansas City 
University Church that Dr. Williams 
was called to his present position in 
1935. Having lived and worked in the 
middle west, he was an excellent ad- 
dition to the Home Missions staff. In 
1933 he had been awarded the degree 
of Doctor of Divinity in recognition 
of his valuable service in the Kansas 
Conference. In his report to the Gen- 
eral Conference in 1937 Bishop V. 0. 
Weidler, then General Secretary of 
the Home Missions and Church Erec- 
tion Society, said of Dr. Williams' ap- 
pointment, "He came to us with won- 
derful experience, with a fine history 
cf great business ability. He is a 
splendid orator. He is a facile writer 
and has been a great addition." 



Students Petition 
Waring For L.V. Song 

Fred Waring's Radio Hour has 
been presenting a song each Friday 
for any college or university whose 
student body sent in a signed petition. 
Hoping to get such a song for Leba- 
non Valley, "Bud" Rubin started the 
ball rolling by preparing a petition 
for our bulletin board. The petition 
was circulated for about two weeks 
during which time approximately 
two hundred fift'y students affixed 
their signatures. Rubin will now mail 
the petition to Fred Waring and wait 
for a reply as to whether our school 
has been accepted for a dedication of 
one of his programs. 



Paul Makovsky, Concert violin-

Battista Debuts 
At Town Hall 

Stellar Recital For 
Large Audience 

it was a misfortune that more Leb- 
anon Valley College students could 
not have gone to the debut recital jf 
Mr. Joseph Battista. It was an au- 
spicious occasion. It was an unusually 
large and distinguished audience for 
a debut recital. 

Mr. Battista opened his recital with 
a little known Organ Prelude and 
Fugue in A Minor of Brahms tran- 
scribed for piano by Persichetti. He 
captured the majesty and grandeur of 
the organ style superbly well. 

The Sonata in A flat, Opus 110, is 
one of the most demanding of the 
great works of Beethoven. This was 
one of the musical experiences of the 
evening. The range of dynamics and 
of tonal colorings was immense and it 
gave a compelling quality to his play- 
ing. 

For purity of style and clean cut 
articulation Mr. Battista's playing of 
the G Major French Suite of Bach 
was a model. Those who have attempt- 
ed playing Bach under trying circum- 
stances have real appreciation of Mr. 
Battista's accomplishment. 

Most Lebanon Valley College stu- 
dents heard Mr. Battista play at the 
opening exercises the Chopin Etude in 
F Major. Because of the opportunity 
in Town Hall to be completely warm- 
ed up, his playing attained supreme 
delicacy and control. Also in the Cho- 
pin group were the F Minor Fantai- 
sie, C Minor Nocturne, and the Scher- 
zo in C Sharp Minor. These were play- 
ed with the breadth and grandeur 
demanded in Chopin style. 

In the modern group of Nin, Griffes, 
Shostakovitch, Rachmaninoff, Debus- 
sy, the real hit was the Polka from 
"The Golden Age Ballet" by Shostak- 
ovitch. Rarely is a pianist able to 
make an audience laugh aloud, but 
Mr. Battista did just that. They de- 
manded to hear the Polka a second 
time.

Dr. Lynch Attends 
Dayton Meetings 

On Friday, November 8, Dr. Clyde 
A. Lynch, president of Lebanon Val- 
ley College, accompanied by Mrs. 
Lynch and Mrs. Christian Gingrich, 
motored over Pennsylvania's new 
Dream Highway to Dayton, Ohio, 
where they spent Saturday through 
Thursday at Bonebrake Theological 
Seminary. 

On Saturday afternoon Dr. Lynch 
attended two committee meetings. The 
first meeting was with the Committee 
of Ministerial Standards and Supply 
of the United Brethren denomination. 
The second meeting was with the 
Committee of Institutions, which wao 
attended by the presidents of the five 
United Brethren colleges and the pres- 
ident of Bonebrake Theological Semi- 
nary. 

From Monday until Tuesday noon 
Dr. Lynch attended a meeting of the 
Board of Christian Education. Then, 
from Tuesday noon until Thursday 
noon he was present at a meeting of 
the Board of Administration. On 
Wednesday afternoon he presented an 
address at the installation of David 
H. Gilliatt as professor of homiletics 
and practical theology at Bonebrake. 
The subject of his address was "The 
National Gestalten of the Church." 

Dr. Lynch and his party returned 
to Annville last Friday after a most 
eventful week in Dayton.

The Y. M. C. A. and the Y. W. 
C. A. invite all students to join In 
a service of thanksgiving Wednes- 
day morning, November 27, at 6 A. 
M. in the chapel. 



Sallying forth on Franklin, I 
Thanksgiving holiday, our Dutchmen 
went gunning for a turkey, but alas, 
they failed to even bag a Mudhen. 

University of Delaware, playing 
heads up ball, brought their season 
to a successful close by downing Leba- 
non Valley, 16-0, and climaxing the 
Blue and White's worst season in five 
years. 

The Dutchmen and the Blue Hens 
fought a scoreless battle in the first 
period. Lebanon Valley got a new 
lease on life when Alex Rakow, act- 
ing captain in the place of the injured 
Bosnyak, recovered Paul's fumbled 
punt on his own 48. Kuhn passed to 
Ciamillo on the 37. Grabusky snared 
a pass on the 20 and lateralled to 
Dorazio who jogged into paydirt. The 
officials recalled the play because of a 
forward lateral. Matala punted to 
Paul on the Delaware eleven soon 
thereafter. Staley blocked and recov- 
ered Paul's return kick on the Dela- 
ware eleven. Kuhn picked up six on 
three plays. His attempted field goal 
on fourth down went wide of the goal 
posts. 

Early in the second period Mata- 
la's punt was blocked on the L. V. 14. 
The Dutchmen braced and took the 
ball on their own 11. Later in ; ;he 
same period, Hogan tossed to Sloan 
for a first down on the L. V. 10 yard 
line. Hogan scored through the line 
on the third successive buck. Paul 
circled right end for the extra point. 
When the half ended, Delaware was 
in possession of the ball at mid-field. 

In the third stanza, Delaware con- 
tinued its offensive drive and carried

Der Verein Plans 

" German Night 99 

Program Introduces 
Novel Dancing Ideas 

Der Deutsche Verein is making ela- 
borate plans for a "German Night" 
some time early in January the pur- 
pose of which is to foster apprecia- 
tion for German culture. A large part 
of the evening will be devoted to danc- 
ing to German waltz music and other 
music by German composers. Special 
effort is being put forth to collect 
representative music for waltzing and 
folk dancing. There will be, beside the 
dancing, selections by a German band 
or orchestra and also soma German 
and Pennsylvania German readings 
to add to the atmosphere. Hans Uber- 
seder is program chairman for the 
event which will be open to all stu- 
dents. 

The next club meeting is scheduled 
for Dec. 10 when further plans will 
be made for the one act German play 
that the organization will present in 
February. Paul Stauffer, Martha 
Davies and Marlin Espenshade com- 
pose the play selection committee.

The devil can cite scripture for his 
purpose and it seems that figures can 
also be misconstrued. Seemingly such 
was the case with the statistics quoted 
in last week's editorial. Although our 
business ability may be questionable, 
the central issue is still a matter for 
debate.

The Highwayers 



by ALF NOISE 

Substituting the word "pen" for "sword" in the phrase "he who uses the 
sword shall perish by it" summarizes the present condition of your veteran 
reporter. As a result of publicly exposing suspecting friends, "Alf" has been 
threatened with a special campus biographical "red" book in the Herr Doc- 
tor Goebbel's style as a bombing reprisal for damages inflicted. If such a 
threat is true, I shall retaliate by using the hectic blood plasma of the au- 
thors for defense ink. 

One surely would like to know why "Alf" came prancing upon the 
dean's doorstep at mid-night without his press camera. Appearing at places 
without warning is a newspaperman's privilege, and so there he was just as 
Howard and Verna said, "Good-night." Now "good-night" kisses are legal 
and ''luscious" (so they say), but Hollywood can not duplicate one of these 
"Valley specials." 

Joe Fauber, the transport king of four cornet players, one drum major 
and a five-cent miss-fit, pulled a "rooseveltian," last week. Joe broke a 
traditional traveling record by bringing a girl to college in an all male car 
for the first time in two years. Shall we consider Gracie Smith or Chevie 
honored? 

A certain New Jersey lass from South Hall was overheard saying, "I 
think the professors make a mistake by appointing good looking fellows as 
lab assistants, because they are far more interesting than science. The 
name of Hess was a cited example to present conditions of distraction. 

"It pays to be sick" may well be the motto of "frosh" Bruce Souders 
who has just returned from a hospital leave. If your eyes were to have seen 
the little blond nurse he escorted to a Lebanon H. S. play, your words would 
melt in the mold of the same quotation. Do you notice how he secrets his 
prize from the threatening gaze of a college audience. 

In the true feminine manner the girls of the W. D. S. R. decided to re- 
arrange the furniture in their dwelling to fit their fancy. Confusion as the 
result of a faculty intervention in the housecleaning turned the room into 
a heated congregation of angry women. (And that is dangerous). If they 
use the same method of housecleaning as the "Calcutta boys," one would 
recommend asbestos wallpaper. 



Stage Wh ispers 

After several weeks of indecision, the cast for the Junior 
play has been decided upon. As nearly as can be gathered, here it is: 
Stormont, Jack Dobbs; De Coudray, Robert Weiler; Celestine Marian- 
court, Martha Davies; Comtesse de Broissic, Carolyn Kissinger; Mar- 
quise de Saint Foy, Mary Louise Clark; Henriette, Phoebe Geyer; Beau- 
marchais, Earl Boltz; Temple Franklin, Carl Sherk; Benjamin Franklin, 
Ralph Shay; Louis XVI, David Gockley; Comte de Vergennes, Earl Reber; 
Marquis de Saint Foy, Robert Dressel; Capt. Dariguy, Frank Zimmerman; 
Jeanne, Betty Foster; Philippe, to be decided later; Gabrielle, Louise Boger. 
Now that the casting is nearly complete we are happy to find that there are 
a few juniors who have been hiding their lights under bushels. Here is a 
brief summary of the results: 

JACK DOBBS as the English ambassador — very good English accent 
— definitely an actor of no mean ability — knows most of his lines. 

BOB WEILER as the ladies' man— throws himself into his part very 
nicely— is having trouble with his French pronunciations at present, but 
that can be ironed out in a few rehearsals. 

MARTHA DAVIES as the female love interest — also knows her lines 
—seems to know what she is supposed to do in her role and wants to do it 
well. 

CAROLYN KISSINGER as the confidante of the officers plays her 

part very well— is very convincing— even her walk has been modified to fit 
the part. 

MARY LOUISE CLARK is the mother of the male love interest— she 
has been hiding ever since she came here — is extremely good we can't fig- 
ure why she has never been cast in a play around here before 

PHOEBE GEYER— the perfect hostess of an inn.

jazz notes 

by Maurie Erdman 
More and more as the days roll by 
we find ourselves dropping nickels in 
the machines and flicking on one ra- 
dio to hear just one man's band — 
Will Bradley's. 

This gentleman has taken over the 
style of swing popular a number of 
years ago and added a modern touch 
to it. His boogie swing has given him 
a name in the top brackets which is 
sure to parallel the unforgettables in 
swing history; his straight swing 
ranks among the best; his smooth 
swing is already giving many a long- 
recognized band a run for its money; 
his smooth dance tunes have more 
than made the established big name 
boys blow the dust off their instru- 
ments and batons in order to get down 
to some real work to meet the compe- 
tition. Even through all this he keeps 
playing music to beat the records he 
himself has established in recent 
months. 

Among sax sections you're not like- 
ly to find a match for this lineup — 
Art Mendelssohn, Jo Jo Huffman, 
Nick Ciazza and Sam Sachelle. For 
trumpets Steve Lipkins, Joe Weidman 
and Al Mitchell heat the seats. Back- 
ing up with trombones are Leader 
Bradley, Jim Emert and Bill Corti. 
The rhythm section has truly only 
one rival for fame and that is the top 
notch gang in Crosby's Bobcats. On 
guitar is Steve Jordan, on bass is 
Doc Goldberg, on piano is Freddie 
Slack and on drums is Ray McKinley. 
Every last member in the band has 
graduated from a seat in bands like 
Goodman and the Dorseys. If you 
don't think these boys know swing 
you have another guess coming. 

In the line of hot solo work every 
section boasts an outstanding per- 
former. Lipkins' trumpet choruses 
are the laziest of lazy and the most 
torrid of the torrid ; Bradley on trom- 
bone beats out Teagarden, Dorsey and 
Miller by a mile; Ciazza on sax is 
mighty close to Bud Freeman and 
Eddie Miller; Goldberg on bass has 
only one superior, Bobby Haggart; 
Slack on piano is slowly paralleling 
masters, Joe Sullivan and Bob Zurke; 
while McKinley on drums is ranked 
third nationally, topped only by Ba- 
dauc and Krupa. 

With such a line-up before us what 
more can we say than the top has 
room for this band. 

The band has a light, fast swing 
style with lots of tricky reed and 
brass section rides. You all know the 
kind of music that picks you up and 
sets you down, the kind that makes 
a jitterbug, out of the most conserva- 
tive alligator. 

Here it is, fast and free like B. G. 
on "Bugle Call Rag"; torrid like an 
Armstrong jam session on "Honey- 
suckle Rose"; strong like J. Dorsey's 
"John Silver"; as intricate as a Scott 
arrangement of a Scott tune. On slow 
music his style is deep like Glenn Mil- 
ler's "Danny Boy"; as moving as a 
T. Dorsey rendition of "Stardust"; as 
smooth as Glen Gray's "For You." 

And now, friends, we reach the 
point where I stick out my neck. With 
the above facts in view I lay down 
my claims that this band will rank 
among the top five most popular dance 
bands during the next year's history 
of jazz. That means that one of the 
top bands of today will be down to a 
second rater during the following 
year. Which one? That's going pret- 
ty far, but here's one lad who is plac- 
ing his chips on Will Bradley to fill 
the vacancy and the vacancy won't 
occur because the present occupant 
desires to leave. There's going to be 
a lot of demand for this orchestra and 
before long Bradley is going to be 
folding up at the Hotel Biltmore in 
New York to smash a few attend- 
ance records on ballroom floors here 
in the East. 




Frank Disapproval 

Dear Editor: 

Although I look upon the aud 
of last week's editorial with a o ^ 
awe-stricken admiration, there 
some aspects of the situation ^ 
I cannot commend. c h 

Firstly, the article derived 
majority of its venom from that 
matter of $9,000 which was 



to be clear profit. This th 



icallv 



false assumption shows a pathet 
meager knowledge of account 
methods beyond the ability to 
tract. 



ailcy 

sub. 



iQg 



into 



Secondly, and at the risk of b e " 
dubbed a dyed-in-the-wool rightest 
question the wisdom of delvin 
what should be purely administrati 
matters. Perhaps my home traini^ 
was too thorough, but I still posse ^ 
a modicum of respect for the superb 
experience and training of my elder 

My first premise can be overlooked 
as not necessarily pertinent to the im 
provment of dining hall conditions' 
the second is a problem on which opi n 
ions are sure to differ; but thirdly I 
protest against the resultant changes 
in the dining hall. It seems that we 
will be required to dress for dinner- 
suits for the men, silk stockings f or 
the girls are urged. After a long day 
in the lab, or, as in my case, in the 
conserve the incentive to drass is en- 
tirely lacking. Furthermore, under the 
old regime it was possible to eat in 
ten or fifteen minutes, whereas it now 
takes at least a half hour. Now I ask 
you, is Lebanon Valley trying to com- 
pete with the fashionable boarding 
schools? The waiters do not relish the 
hocus pocus, it complicates the kitchen 
program, and we are losing valuable 
time. 

Resign to authority and let me con- 
tinue to eat as quickly as possible.

In view of the widespread reaction

VALLEY ELEVEN BOWS 
TO ALBRIGHT 

Fourth Quarter Field Goal Spells Defeat 



\ r ugged and determined Albright 
defeated an obstinate Lebanon 
^lley eleven in the Albright Stadium 
^Saturday by virtue of a field goal 
3,1 g b Bennett in the opening min- 
f the fourth quarter. The sub-

tute back for Albright sent the oval 
Stl 'nnin£ en d over en d through the 
^rights f rom tne ^ y ar ^ ^ ne at a 
j fficult angle to increase the Albright 
treak off wins over the Dutchmen 

to six- 

Neither team showed much in the 
first and second quarters. The home 
team k e Pt * ne Blue an d White back 
. jt s own territory throughout the 
half Albright held L. V. C. for downs 
after kicking to the Dutchmen. Breen 
handed the ball to Kuklis on a reverse 
ff jjo was tackled by Matala and 
Schmalzer simultaneously. Alex Ra- 
kow recorded the ball as it bounded 
out of the hands of the stunned Lion 
back, but the referee maintained that 
he had blown his whistle while Kuk- 
]i s s till had possession of the ball. 

The Dietz-men advanced from mid- 
field to the L. V. 19 on a complicated 
pass play that baffled the Valley. 
Breen failed in 3 attempts at the line 
and attempted a pass on fourth down 
that fell incomplete in the end zone. 
The battle see-sawed back and forth 
in the second period with Albright 
out-playing the Frock-men. 

Action flared aplenty in the third 
period when both teams opened the 
bag. Matala punted deep into Al- 
bright territory. The safety man was 
downed as he attempted to skirt his 
right end and fumbled. Matala cov- 
ered the ball at the sidelines, but the 
Valley again failed to gain the ball 
when the officials ruled that the pig- 
skin had gone out of bounds while 
Albright was in possession. 

Albright went to work with a num- 
ber of reverses and end runs to gain 
a first down on the L. V. 35. Breen 
carried the ball to the 24 on the next 
play. Maholick did even better by 
cutting over his own left guard. The 
Valley threw back three thrusts at 
the line when a gain of a yard would 
have resulted in a first down. ' 

Albright again took command when 
the Dutchmen failed to gain. But the 
lme again held after the home team 
h ad advanced to the Valley 37. The 
^i°ns again drove from their own 
44 yard line to the Blue and White 
24 by Killianey's dashes through the 
* eak side and Bennett's reverses. 
, laney again gained a first down 
^ slashing his way to the Valley 13.

ball " Alger " stunt by booting the

little relief throughout the 



game. Rakow, Schmalzer, Staley, and 
Grabusky played 60 minutes and all 
played their best game of the year. 
Captain Bosnyak and Eminhizer were 
replaced by Hall and Shay in the 
first quarter due to injuries. 

Hall, a freshman, proved a consist- 
ent thorn in the side of the Lion all 
afternoon, breaking through on sev- 
eral occasions and proving a stubborn 
man to move out of the line. His 
sterling play at guard aided the Val- 
ley to throw back the Albright ball- 
carriers deep in Blue and White ter- 
ritory. Ciamillo and Matala played 
without relief in the backfield and 
Dorazio and Kuhn gave way only in 
the final minutes of the game. 

Lubin, Johnson, and Plaskonas 
proved the best for Albright in th 
line. Killianey, Breen, and Kuklis led 
the attack for the backs who gained 
ever 250 yards for the Valley's 89 
and rolled up 9 first downs to Leba 
non Valley's 3. 



Soph -Frosh Battle Tuer. 

The sophomore class will be at 
tempting to duplicate its victory of 
last year over the class of '42 when 
taking the field against the freshmen 
on Tuesday afternoon in the annual 
soph-frosh football tussle. This little 
contest has always been a well-played 
and spirited affair since its initiation 
on the Lebanon Valley campus a long 
time back. 

In former years it has almost be- 
come tradition that the sophomore 
class will emerge victorious. The class 
of '40, however, upset the apple cart 
by winning in both its freshman and 
sophomore years. The class of '41 
lost to the class of '40 but defeated 
the class of '42 in the fall of 1938. 
The class of '42 lost to the present 
sophomore class last year to again 
break the practice of other years. 

In that contest the present junior- 
class, with Ralph Mease and Bob Dre- 
sel leading the attack, scored early 
in the second period when Mease 
dashed 30 yards for a touchdown. De- 
spite the efforts of Ted Youse and a 
host of others along the line for the 
juniors, the class of '43 managed to 
push a score across in the opening 
minutes of the 4th quarter on a pass 
from Bill Steele to Meyers. Fritsche 
added the point to give the frosh a 
7-6 victory. 

The class of '44 has been going 
through extensive workouts the past 
two weeks under the watchful eye of 
Coach Bob Weiler. When interviewed 
early this week, Weiler maintained 
that his team in an energetic outfit 
and one that really desires to play 
ball. With experienced men like Ger- 
ace and the Miller boys in the line-up 
he expects his team to defeat the 
sophomores in a scrappy game. Weiler 
announced that "Pee Wee" Miller will 
act as captain for the frosh and Har- 
ry Miller will be calling signals at 
the kick-off. 

Coach Bill Ullery insisted when con- 
tacted by your reporter that he will 
not scout his opponents and that he 
doesn't even know the formation that 
they will be using. Furthermore, he 
stated that he doesn't care to know. 
He added that he expects a close game 
and anticipates a real battle from the 
frosh. Ullery did not reveal a start- 
ing line-up or name the captain of the 
soph team, but announced that Silli- 
man or Uhrich will call plays at the 
stai l. The latter did an excellent job 
last year as quarter-back while a 
bang-up game on offense and defense 
along with Weidman, Walters, and 
Fritsche.

"Take that Banner down! 'tis tattei-ed; 
Broken is its staff and shattered; 
And the valiant hosts are scattered, 

Over whom it floated high. 
Oh, 'tis hard for us to fold it, 
Hard to think there's none to hold it, 
Hard that those who once unrolled it 

Now must furl it with a sigh!" 

—RYAN. 

Pardon us, dear reader, if you will, for the insertion of such a morbid 
sounding bit of verse into our column, but, strangely enough, it so very aptly 
fits our present state of mind, we couldn't restrain from utilizing it. It 
does, without a doubt, set forth our sentiments concerning the outcome of our 
traditional gridiron tussle. 

We went into the battle well-prepared. Coach Frock left nothing un- 
done in an effort to yank the Lion's tail. The Lion snarled all afternoon on 
the Blue and White goal line, but it was not until the final stanza did they 
finally gain a marker. A field goal from the 23-yard line was the decision 
shot. 

Our Dutchmen were pillars of strength on the defense holding Albright 
on downs in dangerous territory. When the chips were down, the lads were 
in there plugging away for their Alma Mater. But great as the defense 
was, the Valley offense wasn't there. Try as they might, our boys couldn't 
run with that pigskin. A very valid reason would be in the Red and White 
unorthodox defense which proved to be mighty successful. As Coach Dietz 
said, "We took a chance on stopping the big boy (Kuhn), and the chance 
worked, so we won the ball game." 

Five Seniors battled their most bitter rivals for the last time in their 
career. Captain Fred Bosnyak sang his swan song, and for his troubles got 
a wrenched knee that may bench him for good. Bruno Grabusky, the husky 
wingman, was a thorn in the Lion's paw all afternoon, and unfortunately 
there was no Daniel there to extract it. Ted Ciamillo battled gloriously in 
a vain attempt to turn the tide in the Blue and White favor. Frank Kuhn, 
the big boy, was hounded all afternoon, never being able to break away. Al- 
bright certainly laid for him. Alex Rakow, the pivot man, played his hardest 
sixty minutes in an attempt to earn a victory. 

The Valley forward line with Schmalzer, Shay, Hall and Staley, showed 
plenty of strength, that should be of great value to next year's squad. Inci- 
dentally, keep your eye on Hall, a Freshman. With a bit more offensive pol- 
ish, and a little less verbal enthusiasm from the lad, should make him a 
great guard. 

We've undoubtedly dwelled on the Albright rendezvous a bit lengthily, 
but we just had to get it off our chest, and so we thank you for listening. 

On the campus, we see the Frosh and the Sophs practicing industriously 
in an effort to develop a bit of unity for their annual struggle. Last year it 
was the Frosh that upset the Sophs. The odds are all in favor of the sec- 
ond year men. They've had experience and they won the game last year. 
The Frosh, we understand have few, if any, experienced men, but they will 
put up a battle. 

The fencers are practicing in preparation for their first match to be 
held some time in December against a Philadelphia school. Maurie Erdman

On Monday night Miss Henderson, 
Eleanor Whitmeyer, and Bobby Herr 
attended a basket ball clinic at Le- 
moyne at which change's in rules 
and problems were discussed. Mrs. 
McKinnon of Penn Hall who is nation- 
al chairman of basket ball rules com- 
mittee of the Harrisburg Board of 
basketball officials was there to take 
charge of the officiating. "It was an 
interesting and worthwhile meeting," 
said Miss Henderson. 

Next week will be the beginning 
of soccer for the girls. All girls who 
would like to play should come out — 
here's a chance to get that much 
needed exercise girls. Each class 
hopes to have a team on the field. 

Friday afternoon the archery meet 
scheduled for last Friday will take 
place. At this meet the girls and the 
boys on the campus will compete with 
each other. On Monday a novelty 
Thanksgiving shoot will be held — the 
targets will be covered with turkeys 
— so come out and shoot yourself a 
turkey. The names of those desiring 
to compete should be handed to Lu- 
j cille Esbenshade or Margaretta Carey 
the first thing Monday morning. 

The W.A.A. Cabinet is planning a 
hockey banquet in honor of the hockey 
team the first Tuesday after Thanks- 
giving vacation. All hockey players 
who plan to attend should place 
their names with Marjorie Kishpaugh 
or Phoebe Geyer before Tuesday, Nov- 
ember 26. The hockey banquet will 
officially close the hockey season. Al- 
bright disappointed their girls by net 
having the game down at Reading. 
Wednesday a game was held between 
the Frosh-Juniors and the Senior- 
Soph. The score^ — 3-0 favor of the 
Frosh-Jrs.

into shape for their first venutre into 
the fencing world. If practice makes 
perfect our boys don't have far to go. 

The Saturday morning battle roy- 
als have ceased, and thoughts are now 
wending toward the basketball floor. 
No schedule has been released as yet, 
but it is sincrely hoped that there will 
be some games before league compe- 
tition gets under way. The lack of 
these preliminary games is considered 
by many to be the reason for the Val- 
ley's slow start last year. 

On Prince Franklin's Turkey Day, 
the Dutchmen wil battle the Uni- 
versity of Delaware team in Wil- 
mington, before a Thanksgiving Day 
crowd. Last year the Valley nipped 
Delaware in a nip and tuck battle. 
Look for the same kind of contest 
this year, with Lebanon Valley again 
on top, but don't say we told you.

unaffected self in the part which 
seemed to have been written espe- 
cially for her. Several people re- 
marked that her voice carried so much 
better this year than previously, 
which was quite true. Probably the 
most notable of her scenes was the 
one involving the diary and her con- 
fession of a self-imposed engagement 
to Gockley. We liked the sudden 
movement with which she hid the 
writing from him. 

Martha Jane Koontz did her usual 
fine job in portraying the character 
of the London dowager. Her hat was 
priceless, as was the way in which 
its feather flopped around her neck 
when she moved. Her maneuvers with 
the lorgnette were very cleverly exe- 
cuted. However, for her character, 
her dress was much too short, and she 
could have had a little more rouge. 
While some seemed to think that she 
was not quite up to par, I believe that 
it was due to the fact that the role 
which she played was not as impor- 
tant as others which she has played 
to date. All in all, she was very good 
in her part, and certainly convincing. 
In fact, to my mind character roles 
are much harder to play than ordi- 
nary ones, and should be highly com- 
mended in this case. 

A newcomer to the L. V. stage al- 
ways creates quite a bit of comment, 
and the case of Jane Baker was no ex- 
ception. Nearly all of the criticism 
heard has been very favorable. How- 
ever, some thought that she did not 
throw herself into the part as much 
as she could have, while others 
thought that she overdid it. As these 
people are in the decided minority we 
may safely say that Jane was a defi- 
nite success in her campus debut, and 
we hope that she will be featured in 
another play in the near future. 

Dennis Sherk in the role of a coun- 
try parson really was the outstand- 
ing character in the play. Whenever 
he was on the stage he simply walked 
away with all the attention of the 
audience. Character parts seem to be 
very simple to him, because he has 
never taken a part without making 
the most of it, and making it out- 
standing. The "Oscar" for the even- 
ing goes to Mr. Sherk, — long may he 
continue his established tradition. 

Betty Minnich, as the governess 
who spilled the "temperance bever- 
age" on her suitcase and put the ba- 
by in that receptacle, brought more 
laughs than any other character in 
the play. She really did wonders with 
her few lines, and succeeded in mak- 
ing herself an important feature of 
the play. Her costume, which was 
provided by her mother, was just the 
thing for the role. So the ladies "Os- 
car" goes to Miss Minnich in a very 
difficult role. 

Robert Mandle in a minor role 
seemed to be a very capable butler. 
His accent was unusual, but everyone 
seemed to like it. The way in which 
he juggled the tray while setting the 
table was really amazing. 

Robert Mays did all that he was ex- 
pected to do with his part, and espe- 
cially outstanding was his very but- 
ler-ish stanch. This was one play in 
which the butlers were really good 
imitations of the traditional English 
butlers, and they can buttle for me 
whenever they want to. 

The scenery was different than 
any that has been seen around here 
in recent years. Especially note- 
worthy were Shenk and Epenshade, 
gardeners extraordinary, who made 
the iris grow in nothing flat. From 
the artistic standpoint this play was 
one most successful one produced 
in the memory of the student genera- 
tion now here. 



Deputations Sent 
To Five Churches 

L. W. R. Has 
Busy Month 

With at least one deputation sent 
out every Sunday the month of Nov- 
ember has beien a busy one for Life 
Work Recruit members. On Nov. 3 
at the Annville U. B. Church Robert 
Mays was the speaker while Phoebe 
Geyer conducted devotions and Mar- 
garet Boyd sang a solo. Doris Smith 
gave vocal selections at Kauffman's 
Church on Thursday, Nov. 7. 

Two groups gave their services on 
Sunday, Nov. 10. One went to the 
Schuylkill Haven U. B. Church wher e 
Charles Wolfe taught the Sunday 
School lesson and Margaret Boyd 
sang accompanied by Genevieve 
Stansfield. The other deputation, Con- 
sisting of Harry Fehl as speaker and 
Richard Rodes as chairman of devo- 
tions, visited the local Evangelical 
Church. At the Lititz U. B. Church 
last Sunday, Nov. 17, Martha Davies 
was in charge of devotions, Haven 
Kessel was speaker, and Doris Smith, 
accompanied by Genevieve Stansfield, 
presented the special music. 

Next Sunday, Nov. 24, there will 
again be two deputations. At the 
Shiremanstown U. B. Church, Cyril 
Little will act as devotional chairman 
and Clinton Zimmerman will preach 
the sermon. Vocal selections will be 
rendered by Caroline Kissinger. For 
the regular monthly service at the 
local U. B. Church the speaker will 
be Richard Rodes. Jane Ehrhart is 
to conduct the devotional period and 
special music will be provided by 
Robert Weiler.

This summer has seen some im-

America, Dr. Bender has completed 
a chart of the elements made of wood- 
en balls. The balls are arranged ac- 
cording to their atomic order and are 
arranged in depth according to their

his idea when he saw a similar model

Owen Acclaimed 
Master - Soothe 

The champion soothe of Lebanon 
Valley has been discovered to be Dick 
Owen, aviator, biology major, and la- 
dies' man who hails from Prospect 
Park way. Emerging from oblivion to 
be recognized as one having unbeliev- 
able acuteness in prophesying future 
events he, of all those daring to guess 
as to the outcome of the Albright 
game, came most close to the truth 
by saying 0-0 would be the score. On- 
ly one field goal kept him from being 
absolutely correct and that shouldn't 
have been entered on the books any- 
way. 

Soothe Owen states that he cannot 
determine to just what he credits his 
inspiration. However, the idea came 
to him presumably while kneeling un- 
der a tree on a rainy night when 
hunting for a lost dime. As Joan d'- 
Arc had visions so was he inspired. 

Those ranking next as necromanc- 
ers are Sara Beamesderfer and Vir- 
ginia Bernhard who guessed L. V. 3 
and Albright 2 and L. V. and Al- 
bright 6.

subjects. So here are my sugggestions. 

First there is always the safe sub- 
ject of the European Conflict. I pre- 
sume you could inspire us to wave our 
silver swords for democracy without 
stepping on the toes of the administra- 
tion! But then you might not wish 
to compete with international com- 
mentators, so I'll make a few more 
suggestions. You might write about 
school spirit, or Christmas cheer; but, 
dear editor, take care to say nothing 
about chapel services' or conditions in 
the M. D. S. R. Or if you wish to be 
entirely safe by keeping completely 
away from the campus, may I suggest 
that you discuss Brazil's latest stamp 
issues, or the progress of the chest- 
nut blight! For something of local 
interest you might discuss soil analy- 
ses of Lebanon County. The chemistry 
department will gladly furnish figures 
(which do not require the services of 
a C. P. A. to translate them!), and 
the department will not object to the 
publication of said figures! Yours for 
the Freedom of the Press.

Stage Whispers 



(Continued from Page 2) 



EARL BOLTZ— is putting every- 
thing he has into his lines — is another 
surprise talent. 

CARL SHERK as the young grand- 
son of Franklin — has a rather diffi- 
cult part as he is to be quite young, 
but is doing very nicely. 

RALPH SHAY as the hero, Frank- 
lin — is doing a really exceptional 
piece of work — is just the type for 
the part, even down to the build — 
knows nearly all of his long part — 
can quote Franklin's witty sayings 
as if they are original with him. 

EARL REBER as the minister of 
foreign affairs — has really improved 
remarkably since the first rehearsal — 
has made a decided attempt to learn 
the French pronunciations and has 
succeeded very well. 

ROBERT DRESEL as the male 
love interest — his first attempt at 
acting since his coming here — a little 
strange in the love scenes but that is 
merely a matter of time — otherwise 
he is among the best in the play. 

FRANK ZIMMERMAN as the 
captain and perhaps as the servant 
also — makes an ideal servant — has 
just been cast as captain so the re- 
sults are still vague — must raise his 
voice before the final night. 

LOUISE BOGER as the maidser- 
vant has just the right amount of 
subservience in her lines. 

BETTY FOSTER as another ser- 
vant — quite good and has a well exe- 
cuted curtsey worked up — is doing 
wonders in the capacity as assistant 
directress — even worked out exits and 
entrances.

Fire Destroys 
Quittie Prints 

Year-book Receives 
Setback 

The pictures of members of the 
Junior class for the 1941 Quittie were 
lost due to fire in the Zamsky Studios, 
Philadelphia, which were destroyed 
on Wednesday, November 20. Editor 
Guinivan states that resittings will be 
arranged as soon as possible. A sched- 
ule will be posted as before. Cooper- 
ation is requested to alleviate this 
delay. 

Today, December 5, at 12:45 the 
first of the informal snapshots were 
taken. Members of the class will be 
informed when they are to appear for 
these. The charge of five cents will 
be asked to defray the expenses of 
these informal shots. 

In charge of the various depart- 
ments of the Quittie staff are engrav- 
ing editor, Robert Guinivan; literary 
editor, Phoebe Geyer; photography 
editors, Charles Beittel and George 
Zeigler; and printing editor, Robert 
Mays. All editors report progress. 
With the execption of the retaking of 
the pictures work is completely on 
schedule. 



Shively Addresses 
L R. C. Meeting On 
Japanese Conditions 

Dr. B. F. Shively, who has seen 33 
years of service in the United Breth- 
ren Church in Japan, visited Leba- 
non Valley's campus Monday. During 
the course of his visit here, Dr. Shive- 
ly lectured to two classes, and in the 
evening addressed the members of the 
International Relations Club at their 
regular meeting. 

Dr. Shively prefaced his subject 
"The Present Crisis in the Orient," 
with a geographical survey of Japan. 
He stated that the total land surface 
of Japan was not as large as the 
state of California. Since the country 
is largely mountainous, only from 14 
to 16 per cent of the total land area 
is arable. This means that the possi- 
bilities for stock raising in Japan is 
small, and that even by scientific 
methods of farming not nearly enough 
food can be raised to feed this over- 
populated state. In addition, Dr. 
Shively pointed out that Japan has 
only a limited supply of raw materi- 
als. He formed a comparison in na- 
tural resources between Great Brit- 
ain, the United States, and Japan. 
Of 25 essential raw materials such 
as coal, iron and tin, Great Britain 
has an adequate supply of 18 of thes;;, 
a limited supply of 2 and none of 
five. The United States possesses an 
adequate supply of 16, a limited sup- 
ply of 4, and none of 5. Japan has 
an adequate supply of 3, a limited 
amount of 5, and none of 17 essential 
raw materials. 

With these statistics as a back- 
ground, he began an informal discus- 
son of the state of affairs in the Ori- 
ent. Throughout his talk Dr. Shively 
maintained an attitude of frankness 
coupled with a desire to learn from

Sophs Victorious 
In Annual Contest 

Best Played Game 
In Years 

"Chump" Pollock and Dick Beckner 
led an inspired and rejuvenated soph- 
omore football team to victory over 
a determined frosh eleven by a 12-6 
score in the second half of the an- 
nual Soph-Frosh football game last 
Tuesday afternoon. The contest was 
said by many who know the finer 
points of the game to be the best 
played battle in the last five years. 
Both teams were well founded in fun- 
damentals and showed the results oi 
efforts of more extensive coaching 
than of other years. 

The ball game was delayed for 
about 10 minutes when it was found 
that an insufficient number of head- 
gears had been provided for the game. 
The unlucky frosh lad who was min- 
us a helmet finally secured one and 
play began as Fritsche kicked off for 
the Sophs. Miller returned the ball 
to his own 20. Both teams played con- 
servative ball in the first quarter, 
kicking and second and third downs 
and using straight power shots and 
bucks. 

Near the end of the period Bob 
Kern kicked to Beckner who fumbled 
on his own 47. The alert frosh re- 
covered but failed to gain on two 
plays. Kern's punt hit "Wrong Way" 
Silliman who was playing it safe and 
the frosh again recovered as the 
quarter ended. Kern's plunge for 5 
was nullified by a penalty. Ungar 
carried for a gain of 13 yards on a 
reverse lateral play. Kern picked up 
6 on 2 plays to gain a 1st down. 

Kern again carried the ball on three 
plays and scored on last down with 
goal to go. The pass from center was 
bad on the try for point. At this point 
a driving snow began to fall upon the 
large crowd of spectators who tra- 
velled to the field to witness the bat- 
tle. The thermometer had been hov- 
ering just over the zero mark and a 
slight wind had arisen early in the 
afternoon to make it a highly disa- 
greeable day for the sideline quarter- 
backs. 

Prof. Miller and the handful of his 
European history students who had 
reported to his 2:30 class entered the 
gates of our stadium soon after the 
frosh took the 6-0 lead. Silliman car- 
ried the frosh kickoff back to the 30.

La Vie seems to be following the 
practice of several outstanding com- 
mercial magazines by publishing con- 
tinued stories. Like these stories, our 
little editorial has a surprise conclu- 
sion. The figures that our prize sleuth 
uncovered to solve the mystery of the 
dining hall profit were not correct. 
We have been informed by our su- 
periors that there is no profit made 
in the culinary department of the col- 
lege. La Vie Collegienne is very sorry 
that it has brought shame upon the 
fair head of our institution, and hum- 
bly expresses its regrets for the mis- 
representation. 



Foreign Affairs 

It has been suggested to the editors 
that La Vie devote part of its editor- 
ial column to a discussion of the in- 
ternational situation as a means of 
safety. To be doubly safe we are call- 
ing in a few outsiders to discuss the 
question, Should the U. S. Neutrality 
Act be revised to permit our ship: 
to carry supplies to Britain? 

James Truslow Adams answers: 
"I do not believe that, in a world 
changing as rapidly as ours, any laws 
can be passed that will cover every 
occasion. 

Specifically, at the present moment 
it seems to me that the British Em- 
pire is fighting our battle for freedom 
and all we have held dear as making 
life worthwhile. 

Throughout our history we have 
stood for the freedom of the seas. I 
see no reason for going back on that 
when doing so involves the failure to 
give all the help we can to a gallant 
people who are fighting for us. 

I say, change the law." 

Senator Capper answers: 

"In my judgment, the Neutrality 
Law should not be revised to allow our 
merchant ships to carry supplies to 
Great Britain. It is just another step 
toward war. 

I do not believe the United States 
should intervene in Europe's wars, 
no matter how strongly our sympa- 
thies lie with England. American 
s'hips carrying supplies to England 
would undoubtedly be attacked by 
axis powers, providing the necessary 
'incident' to inflame American sen- 
timent and make Europe's war our 
war. 

I say keep the 'cash and carry' of 
the Neutrality Act and do not repeal 
the Johnson Act." 



Dutching |t 

with Ira Asaph 

With a rejuvenated spirit and a 
hopeful heart Ira trotted down to the 
post this past Monday morning think- 
ing that during the four days of va- 
cation some condescending soul might 
have contributed a post card to his 
usually empty mail box. "Perhaps," 
mused Ira, who always puts too much 
faith in human kind, "perhaps the 
girl who sold hot dogs on the beach 
this summer decided, after reading 
my fiftieth letter, to write me one. 
Or maybe I'll get a check for my 
roommate's book that I sold to Barnes 
and Noble. Better still my big broth- 
er just might return the fin lie 
bummed from me with such fraternal 
skill when I was an innocent frosh!" 
So, tender-hearted reader, Ira knows 
you will understand with how crest- 
fallen a spirit he read the following 
communication written on a flyleaf 
torn from a freshman English book: 
Dere Ira, 

Fer years me brudder Oliver — the 
one dat got his walking papers from 
dis place after seven years of honest 
endever — keeps telling me dat the on- 
ley way ter git along here is ter read 
ira asaph and to study it hard, see, 
cause den i will know everyting about 
every body. So I come here to school, 
see, and I don't buy any books, I just 
reads what youse got ter say. it was 
purty tuff readin and dull but I says 
ter myself Cuthbert ol boy, if this is 
what it takes to be on the honor roll 
then this is what you is gonna do. 
Then mid-semester marks comes out 
and the dean says strait F means 
flunk instead of fine so now I wonders 
kid if maybe you ain't slippin som- 
what. Seems to me I know more then 
youse I know. Fer example durin a't.1 
this rumpus between Dutch an Jesse 
you hassn't said a word an I guess 
nobody would no as how they is all 
broken up fer good if I didn't tell 
you. An I think Milly and Grubby 
is still goin strong from the fancy 
remarks he hands to her at the table 
along with the butter even if her 
friends does try to gum up the works. 
And Alf Noise doesn't do so good 
neither cause he didn't say a thing 
about how Kay Jay is tryin to cut in 
on Louise Keller's Clio date and how 
are we ever supposed to know any- 
ting if youse guys don tell us. How 
can I help gettin F in gym when 
you don't tell us there was twelve on 
the Lepnan Valey football team this 
year countin Yeakel, I asks you. No 
wonder I don't pass algerba if you 
can't add Marty and Smitty and get 
couple. Now don't go an get mad 
cause ise jest trying to give you a 
helping hand see and I know you havi? 
a hard job but theres lots of us fel- 
lows suspending on you so try to stick 
to the colum and don't take any more 
vacations cause if we can't count on 
Ira who can we count on or can we. 
Fer years me brudder Oliver keeps 
tellin me ter come ter collidge fer 
a culteral eddication and how you has 
more of that an brass then any body 
here so don't go lowbrow now. 
Respctfly yer obed. serv.,

Stage Whispers 



This week for a change I am going to give our local presentations a 
rest and try to tell the actors in "Poor Richard" (for that is the name under 
which it will be presented) what NOT to do on the stage. We are not 
trying to insinuate that all of these faults have been found on campus, but 
there must always be a first time, and the purpose of this is to put off this 
"first" as long as possible. ESQUIRE thought of the idea first, so if you 
have vague recollection of having seen something like this before, that's 
where it was. 

LADIES ! ! 

1. DON'T pace back and forth across the stage with Amazonic 
strides. There is nothing less romantic-looking than a woman who just can't 
sit still. No man wants to have to take up track to catch his prospective 
bride. 

2. When portraying a lady in deep thought, DON'T meditatively feel 
your face with your hands. To begin with, you will probably make a mess 
of your make-up; and second, you will resemble nothing more than a beau- 
tician searching for blemishes. 

3. DON'T display your rear view to the audience any more than is 
necessary. No matter how perfect the back of your coiffure may be, your 
face will be more appreciated. 

4. When in a love scene, DON'T change your voice from its normal 
tone to a hushed and admiring one. Every male in the audience will think 
that you are playing your hero for a sucker. 

5. DON'T allow the publicity agent to list the conventional credits for 
your articles of apparel. After all, the audience doesn't care where you 
buy your shoes and other similar articles. 

GENTLEMEN ! ! 

1. DON'T try to depict either the wooden Indian or the caveman in 
your public love scenes. There is a happy medium, you know, so why not try 
to hit it. If you were out at Kreider's you would know how to act. 

2. DON'T borrow a coat the sleeves of which are so short that a good 
five inches of wrist and arm dangle from them. Dangly hands look bad 
enough when partially concealed, but when they boldly show forth in all 
their nakedness, they become grotesque. 

3. DON'T talk with your pipe in your mouth. It may make you look 
more like Ronald Coleman, but make the great sacrifice so that your words 
can go straight to the audience instead of worming around a pipe stem 
em route. 

4. DON'T let your backstage activities, such as cards and the heroine, 
keep you from missing your cues or going on the stage when someone else 
is scheduled to enter. We realize that these extra-Thespian attractions are 
half of the fun of a play, but please have a little consideration for the di- 
rector's neiwes. 



jazz notes 

by Maurie Erdman 

For this session let's take up a band known down the line from, the 
most radical swing cat to the most conservative unenthusiast; one whom we 
all love, the immortal Tommy D. 

Back in '35 Tommy severed relations with brother Jimmie and each 
began anew in friendly rivalry with the other. Jimmie's story of hardship 
has been told in this column. The story of Tommy is one of triumphant 
success and enduring fame in ever increasing quantities. From 1935 to 1940 
he has held the spotlight as the nation's choice for America's "Grand Old 
Man of Jazz." Although not old in years, his experience in pleasing the 
public is incalculable. 

The arrangement of this band is unimportant for it's not much different 
from any other band. Your next question is sure to be, "What makes him 
so different?" Who could answer that one? Maybe it's something that can't 
be described, perhaps it's just the warmth and ability of its leader that 
makes it outstanding. Of this much we may be sure; the style of his music 
is unparalleled and unbeaten in all the history of jazz for silken smoothness.

After a brief recuperation period 
elapsing between "Frank's giving" 
and Thanksgiving Holidays, I dash 
back to my press sheet to pen my 
weekly script of Goebbelism and ob- 
scure humor mingled with a certain 
amount of subtle verbosity. 

Carl Sherk, popular agitator, cloth- 
ier salesman and class president all 
molded into one "fishy" pre-med 
scholar has declared that your report- 
er has failed in not covering more 
of the field in this column. With hum- 
ble pardons I apologize to our friend 
and promise to be more alert and in- 
clusive. Probably a letter to a girl in 
Palmyra, Viol by name, may bring us 
some more interesting material for 
our weekly issue — or would that be 
too "vile"? 

Last week several freshmen from 
the dorm appeared with placards 
bearing the inscription "I broke the 
date rule." Although these attracted 
attention, which were followed by 
some upperclassman's advice of how 
to date without being caught, they did 
not equal the size of the sign that 
Hon Light was compelled to wear. 
The sign reading, "I forgot my dj nk 
was of such propensities that the ' g' r 
friend of the band" was obliged to en- 
ter classes in a lateral position. 

Bob Nichols, a Tyrone production 
(not Power, the actor) was overhear" 1 
saying that he had never been deei 
hunting when a certain faculty 
server beautifully added "Why, " 
have been 'dear' hunting on the c 
pus since September." Its hard enofe 
to escape the press without sUC ^,^ , e 
secution, but should "Prof" n ot " a 
named the species of "doe"? . ^ 

At first I thought it was some tn ^ 
I ate, but on verification of other 

the 
th< 



nesses, I saw a romantic mix-uP ,n 



Iking 



form of George Bryce wa 
path with our little organist. 
Goodman. Although it was 
friendly, the combination was 
shock to students that many 
to inquire if someone had S ot 
nals confused. P. S.: Alex w»s ^

B ASKETB ALL SEASON TO OPEN 
WITH FIRST GAME JAN. 4 



Intrieri Announces Schedule 



fl/'th the curtain rung down on the 
tball season, basketball is now 



holding 



the attention of campus ath- 
- 'and spectators. 
Coach M ike Intrieri, who, at the 
f last season, had developed a 
cloSe q U intet of ball players, is again 
^charge of the squad. He has al- 
issued his call for candidates, 



ready 
the 



first workout being held on Mon- 
a t which time the group was put 
trough intensive calisthenics in an 
a k to round the lads into shape as 
eft 01 -ui 
qU ickly as possible 
Coach Intrieri will have, as a nuc- 
for his squad this year, those 
^nsaticnal sophomores who complete- 
ly upset the league last year. Mease, 
captain and forward, is expected to 
again lead the a tack with his un- 
canny shooting. Last year he upset 
the expected results by clinching the 
scoring title of the loop. 

Ed Schillo, whose dynamic play 
kept the opposition continually baf- 
fled, is hindered by an injured knee, 
but he hopes to round into shape for 
the opening battle. Don Staley again 
is on hand to roam the back court, in- 
tercepting passes and bothering his 
opponents in general. Kubisen will 
be counted on to continue his excel- 
lent defensive play and to continue to 
toss in his under the basket tap-ins. 

The only member of the sophomore 
quintet who has not reported is Ted 
Youse who has not given any reasons 
for his failure to attend practices. It 
is rumored that the curly-headed 
guard does not intend to play the 
back-boards this winter. 

In addition to the old men, Coach 
Intrieri will have the stalwarts of 
last year's Freshman squad at his dis- 
posal. Matala, Silliman, Goliman and 
Beckner. Other men reporting for 
the first workout were : George Grow, 
Bernard Bentzel, George Meyers, 
George Smith, Chris Wornas, Frank 
Kuhn, Joe Carr and Bob Weiler. 

On the schedule, the same teams 
that were played last year, will be 
Lebanon Valley's opponents this year 
again. Home games will again be 
Played on the spacious Lebanon High 
School floor. The schedule of both 
Varsity and Freshmen as released by 
Athletic Director J. W. Frock are as

Governments Work To Be 
Explained On CBS 

In an attempt to lift the hood and 
show Americans how the machinery 
of their government works, the Col- 
umbia Broadcasting System has ar- 
ranged a new series of programs, 
"Report to the Nation." 

The programs, non-partisan and 
unbiased, will explain with the aid 
of dramatizations, and interviews 
with government figures, important 
and small, how the government func- 
tions. 

Broadcast every Saturday, from 
6:00 to 6:30 p.m., EST, the programs 
will take up a different phase of gov- 
ernment activity each week. On the 
first program, heard November 30, 
dramatizations and interviews told the 
story of the Selective Service Act. 

A sample discussion before a sub- 
committee of the Committee on Ap- 
propriations of the House of Repre- 
sentatives showed how the elected leg 
islators in Washington control expend- 
itures by the Army in building can 
tonments. Short dramatic interludes 
were intended to tell the human story 
of Selective Service: how the army 
feeds the drafted men, what their 
work will be, and what they will do 
for recreation. 

Explaining the purpose of the new 
series, W. B. Lewis, CBS Vice-Presi- 
dent in charge of broadcasts, said: 
"The government of bhei United 
States is the agent of the people in 
the conduct of their national interests. 
This being a government of, by, and 
for the people it is both the duty and 
privilege of the people to know how 
those interests are being furthered. 
Thus, the Columbia Broadcasting 
System has decided to present pro- 
grams each Saturday to report on the 
operation of the government in con- 
nection with a problem or event up- 
permost in the public interest. 

"This weekly 'Report to the Nation' 
over CBS is to be nonpartisan and 
unbiased. It is to be informal and 
factual. It aims to bring the people 
the story behind the story of the big- 
gest business on earth — the United 
States government — a business in 
which the people are the stockhold- 
ers." 

The "Report to the Nation" is to 
be heard over the Columbia network 
through the facilities of WJSV, Col- 
umbia's station for the nation's capi- 
tal. The programs will be presented 
in the Wardman Park Hotel auditor- 
ium and will be produced by Brewster 
Morgan of the Columbia directorial 
staff. Victor Bay, a CBS staff con- 
ductor, is in charge of music for the 
broadcasts. 

Two of the Columbia Broadcasting 
System's Washington correspondents 
— Albert Warner and John Charles 
Daly — will act as narrators on the 
program. Warner, CBS Washington 
corresjpondent, will be heard on the 
programs explaining the official ac- 
tivity of the government bodies. Daly, 
an experienced, on-the-spot radio re- 
porter, will describe the scenes show- 
ing the effects of the government's 
work on the lives of everyday people. 



Sports f^Jn Shorts 
__by betty 



The formal anniversary dance of 
the Clionian Literary Society will 
be held from 8-12 p.m., Saturday, 
December 7, 1940, at the Abraham 
Lincoln Hotel, in Reading, Penna. 



Basket ball will now hold the atten- 
tion of the girls from now until the 
spring. Following the same pattern 
as hockey, basketball will be played 
for the sport itself. As Miss Robb 
said at the hockey banquet on Tues- 
day, it is not the scores of games 
what are remembered but rather the 
fun and thrills gained in playing the 
game.The basketball system even more 
than the hockey system carries out the 
new trend in women's athletics for 
basketball is a sport for every girl. 
In addition to the honor team schedule 
which includes outside schools, there 
is an intramural schedule arranged. 
Immediately after Christmas there 
will be a tournament between the 
classes. This year the Seniors hope 
to upset precedent and carry off the 
honors — so lets see Jeanette, and Mar- 
jorie out on the floor — the Seniors 
need you. After this round another 
will be held among the dormitories 
and the day students. 

In the archery meet before Thanks- 
giving the boys took over the girls. 
Sam Stoner had the highest score for 
the boys and Mary Ellen Klopp the 
highest for the girls. At the novelty 
meet we were amazed at the daring 
or rather the confidence that Lucille 
had in Louis shooting. Lucille allowed 
Sam to play William Tell — they used 
balloons instead of an apple. Frankly 
I'm not so sure I'd like to hold balloons 
and have someone shoot at them. Upon 
questioning, Lucille stated she would 
n't do it for just anyone. 



W.A.A.Entertains 
Hockey Players 

Banquet Held 
Monday, Dec. 3 

Miss Robb from Shippensburg was 
the guest speaker at the hockey ban- 
quet on Tuesday night. Her talk was 
centered around — life, liberty, and 
pursuit of happiness — and the way 
sports as engaged in at Lebanon Val- 
ley foster these three principles. She 
stated that ten years from now the 
girls who played hockey will not be 
able to recall scores of games, but 
they will remember the thrill of the 
game and such things as their muddy 
game at Susquehanna. She reminded 
the girls that it is up to them to fur- 
ther the modern trend in women's 
athletics — the trend which holds that 
each girl should be in a sport — it is 
not the perfection of the game she 
plays but the fact that she derives 
much just from playing the game. 

This was the first hockey banquet 
thd W. A. A. has sponsored — judging 
from the success of the one Tuesday 
it should become an annual event. 
Eddie quite outdid himself and served 
a delicious meal. The tables in the 
small dining room were so decorated 
that they looked like three large hock- 
ey fields. Each girl had at her place 
a blue-tuniced hockey figure. 

After the meal the president of the 
W. A. A., Edna Rutherford, and hock- 
leader, Marnie Kishpaugh were intro- 
duced. These girls each congratulated 
the hockey team and thanked the girls 
for their fine spirit and cooperation 
displayed by the girls. Barbara Con- 
verse then told her impression of 
hockey as played at Lebanon Valley. 
Miss Henderson also spoke for a few 
moments concerning the playing of 
the W. A. A. After Miss Robb's 
speech the program ended by the sing- 
ing of songs led by Phoebe Geyer. At 
this time the new W. A. A. song which 
was written by Martha Davies was 
taught to the girls. 



tjfie Spectator

Before moving on to comments on the basketball season looming up 
ahead in the near future we wish to pause and say a word or two about the 
Delaware episode that was so hastily summarized in the last edition of LA 
VIE. 

Alex Rakow, mite center, played the best game of his career while ser- 
ving as captain in place of Fred Bosnyak who was injured too badly in the 
Albright game to permit him to see action in the final game. Rakow was all 
over the field — blocking vicious; tackling savagely, diagnosing plays, recov- 
ering fumbles, intercepting passes, encouraging his cohorts to fight back, 
and proving himself a general nuisance to the Blue Hens all afternoon. We 
wish to take this last opportunity to give credit to a gallant fighter and a 
mighty fine athlete. His play throughout this season, as well as in other 
years, has always brought forth praise and admiration from coaches, plays 
and fans alike. 

It was gratifying to learn that "Frankie" Kuhn received honorable 
mention when the All-S:ate team was selected a short time ago. Kuhn again 
received added honors when he, along with Ed Schillo and Ralph Shay, was 
named when Moravian recently made its All-Opponent selections. Incident- 
ly, the winning streak of the Greyhounds was broken at six when a courag- 
eous Susquehanna eleven upset M. C. by the tune of 6-0. 

The inter-class basketball season of the Men Day Students was begun 
this week when the Seniors met the Frosh and the Juniors tackled the Sophs. 
These games, unusually hard played contests, will again be staged during the 
noon hour on Thursdays and Fridays. Last years champs, the class of '40, 
took over the winner of the Dorm League in the post-season three game ser- 
ies. 

It seems that a rather difficult situation arose a few months ago when 
the "L" Club was prevented from using its usual methods of gaining money 
to purchase sweaters and gold watch charms for its members. The profits 
at the Homecoming Dance were not too large and as we understand it, the 
athletes are in a quandry as to the proper means of gaining "folding money" 
to reward varsity team members. 

Just a word of thanks to one of our best friends for giving the staff the 
names of the members of the football team who were accredited with var- 
sity recognition for their play this fall before this information was handed 
out to dailies of nearby burgs. 



Sophs Victorious 
In Annual Contest 



{Continued from Page 1) 



Two plays netted no gain and the 
Sophs kicked. The Frosh in turn fail- 
ed to gain and booted to the Soph 
35. Steele picked up 6 yards on first 
down. Beckner faded back on second 
down and heaved a long pass down- 
field to Pollock who picked the oval 
out of the zone on the Frosh 40 and 
carried to the 25 before being brought 
to terra firma. An attempted pass 
by the second-year men fell to earth 
as the half closed. 

The staff of reporters interviewed 
a number of students during the in- 
termission to secure comments on the 
game. Ralph Mease stated that he 
had no reason to doubt that his room- 
mate Kern would bring victory to the 
Frosh. The redoutable John Paul 
Himmel (varsity water boy) placed 
his faith in the Frosh to maintain 
their lead in the second half. "Liz" 
Kerr made a rather explosive state- 
ment concerning the Frosh team that 
cannot be put into print. Peggy Boyd. 
Fern Poet, Jane Stabley, Barney 
Bentzel, and Prof. Richie were all 
contacted at half-time to express their 
views of the contest. 

Three West Hall lassies also pre- 
sented diversion for the press as we'll 
as the freezing fans during the 
breathing spell by putting on an in- 
eresting punting dual on the base- 
ball infield. One of the coeds had dif- 
ficulty in meeting the pigskin square- 
ly at the beginning of the demonstra- 
tion, but showed great form as the 
two teams returned to the gridiron. 
Perhaps these athletically minded co 
eds of our institution might initiate 
their own series when next fall rolLs 
around. Who knows? 

Fred Bosnyak, head mentor on ths 
Soph coaching staff, out-Rockned 
Rockne during half-time when he lot 
loose a tirade upon his charges for 
their spiritless play in the first half. 
He sent his team from the shelter 
of the field house with one final blast 
to "go out there and hit someone." 
Ed Schillo and Bob Weiler meanwhile 
were encouraging their boys on the 
far side of the field beneath the press 
box. 

The Sophs showed the results of 



Bosnyak's desultory remarks by block- 
ing viciously on the kick-off to enable 
Beckner to return the prolate spher- 
oid to his own 45. Pollock took a re 
verse from Steele on first down into 
the weak side for eleven yards and a 
first down. Failing to gain on three 
plays, the Sophs kicked to the Frosh 
S. The penalty on the Sophs for de- 
lay of the game gave the Frosh a mo- 
mentary break. However, this gain 
was more than nullified when a Soph 
lineman recovered a fumble by the 
first-year men. 

Pollock picked up 12 yards and a 
first down on the reverse to the weak 
side. Three plays netted only 5 yards. 
Little Elmer again took the ball from 
Steele on a reverse and slithered into 
pay-dirt. Fritsche's attempted con- 
version was low. 

Unger returned the kick-off to the 
30. A pass, Kern to C. Miller, play- 
ing end, was good for a first down 
with a gain of 14 yards on the play. 
Two attempted passes by the Frosh 
lost 10 yards. Kern lost 3 on a run 
from punt formation. Beckner ran 
back Kern's punt 15 yards to his own 
47 on the first play of the last period. 
"Chump" again ran the reverse, this 
time for 44 yards to the Frosh nine as 
Beckner carried out a good fake. The 
latter sliced through the frantic Frosh 
line for a T. D. on the first down. 
The pass from center was bungled on 
the try for point. 

The valiant Frosh came back with 
Kern getting credit for three first 
downs on two nice runs and a pass 
from Unger. Swindell (accent on sec- 
ond syllable) did a fine job on the 
blocking assignments on these plays. 
"Shadow" Weidman, midget center 
for the Sophs, stops this drive of 42 
yards by intercepting a pass and gal- 
loping to the enemy 48. Two plays 
gained 3 yards. 

The Frosh soon lost possession of ' 
the ball when Croll intercepted a 
"screened" pass by Kern from punt 
formation. Little cut back into the 
weak side on Pollock's pet play for 
8 yards as the game neared its end. 

A host of frosh substitutes (minus 
shoes, shoulder pads, etc.) took the 
field just before time ran out. Coach 
Weiler sent these boys into the game 
as his cause appeared hopeless in or- 
der to make the lads eligible to re- 
ceive class numerals. Grow, fifth as-

period with linesmen "Blind Man" 
Matala, "Big Don" Staley, and Geo 
Washington Smith who manned the 
chain and sticks, claiming that said 
gentlemen were favoring his oppo

Co-Captains Weidman and Fritsche 
played splendid ball on defense along 
with the guards, Croll and Ebersole. 
The latter was especially outstand- 
ing for his stellar play highlighted 
by his vicious tackles and aggressive 
charge. Pollock and Beckner proved 
the spark plug for the Sophs in the 
backfield and were not to be denied 
in the second half. Carbaugh, Wells, 
the Miller boys, Unger, and Kern 
showed up best for the fighting frosh 
eleven. Kern provided the necessary 
punch in the first half with his pile- 
driving runs and hard tackling.

Jazz Notes 



(Continued from Page 2) 



Here's a man who will go down in 
the annals of jazz history as one who 
hit the top and never left it. 

Just to prove the statement, do you 
remember a record released by Victor 
back in June of 1937 called "Star- 
dust"? That one record outsold any 
other single issue released by Victor 
before or since that date. Since the 
average life of a good popular song 
is only four or five months it takes 
a master to play a piece of jazz music 
that will be so loved by all that its pop- 
ularity will remain high after more 
than five years. More recently, look 
at Ruth Lowes' "I'll Never Smile 
Again." We all go for Glen Miller, 
in a big way, yet when he released it 
in the third week of May it didn't 
go across. About the last week in 
July, three months later when the 
song was almost dead, Tommy added 
his touch. Within three weeks the 
sale of sheet music copies skyrocket- 
ed to 150,000. Does it take a genius ? 
Can you name any other dance band 
in the last ten years who came near 
it? 

His current show may be heard 
each Saturday evening from five to 
six p. m. over the NBC station. In- 
cluded in the show are Connie Harris, 
Frank Sinatra and the Pied Pipers. 
For an hour of real enjoyment park 
yourself by the speaker the next time 
you hear the "Sentimental Gentleman 
of Swing" playing "I'm Getting Sen- 
timental Over You."

ZAGREB GRATITUDE 
From two lonesome Americans 5,- 
000 miles from home in Zagreb, Yugo- 
slavia, reminded of American au- 
tumns by the beauty of October in 
Illyria, CBS recently received a letter 
of thanks. The grateful correspond- 
ents, members of a U. S. consular 
staff in Yugoslavia, have found an 
outlet for their nostalgia in the short- 
wave broadcasts of Ted Husing's de- 
scriptions of American college foot- 
ball games. 

After describing the similarity be- 
tween autumn by the Adriatic and 
autumn by the Great Lakes, the two 
writers told how they wish there were 
more football broadcasts to keep 
them from becoming too lonesome. 

"The Saturday night circle of the 
two authors of this letter and their 
wives listening to the football games 
5,000 miles away is, together with 
our legation crowd in Belgrade, per- 
haps the unique audience you have 
for this broadcast in Yugoslavia, and 
we feel very privileged. The recep- 
tion is perfect in every detail, includ- 
ing bands and cheering, but you did 
let us down terribly last Saturday 
when Ohio State had the ball on 
Minnesota's four-yard line and the 
urbane voice of CBS had to inter-

\ lifting book ends \

IN SEARCH OF COMPLICATIONS 

By Eugene de Savitsch 

For a man who has proved his 
worth as a philosopher, adventurer 
and doctor to write a book as thor- 
oughly readable as this, his autobio- 
graphy, is indeed a deviation from 
the usually stilted manner of thosv. 
who wish to combine themselves with 
worldly knowledge of politics, science, 
or philosophy. However, it is just this 
which the Russian doctor does in this 
work which now introduces him cred- 
itably to a new field, the literary one. 

Dr. Savitsch shows us the reason 
for his entertaining "tale of me" by 
the surprising turns he continually 
has made during his life. From birth 
into an aristocratic Russian family, 
through growth in his native land fol- 
lowed by exile to Japan, to youth in 
the United States, and finally ma- 
turity as a world citizen he always 
conquered himself or conditions by 
his sense of humor and persistency. 
Like the variety of his life his story 
and manner of narration are likeable 
surprises. What were some of these 
surprises? 

Well, we might mention that even 
though he and his schoolmate thought 
Rasputin must die, he disapproved 
ethically of the way his murder over- 
went the laws of hospitality by first 
entertaining him at dinner; or how 
he became infatuated by another Pav- 
lova and even danced in her troop 
until her weight bowed him down 
physically and caused him mentally 
to seek flight; or how he kept track 
of fish-stealing waiters in Yokohama ; 
or how he won a high mark in French 
by refusing to do his lead in a play 
unless he received it. For further un- 
expected turns we refer to his trans- 
ition from drygoods clerk, tc laborer 
in a cannery, to a patient in a sani- 
torium, to a medical situdenv. His 
struggle for his degree employed his 
courage while his experience in the 
Congo made him meet situations and 
tests few have the privilege or mis- 
fortune to face. 

Even though this book is a reflec- 
tion of Savitsch's life we find excel- 
lent studies of his mother, a woman 
who gracefully met and triumphed 
over her expulsion from her home; 
of the White Russians who came to 
U. S.; of the post-war situation in his 
native land; of tfye types of cosmo- 
politans found in Japan; and most of 
all of the study of medicine through- 
out the world. Savitsch is realistic, 
plain spoken but we appreciate his 
candid pictures of war, starvation, 
and achievement. When we have read 
his story we have met a man we would 
like to know.

Shively Addresses I. R. C. 
Meeting On Japanese 
Conditions 



(Continued from Page 1) 



the group something which might 
shed light upon the critical situation 
in the far east. The entire meeting 
seemed more like a seminar than any 
formal gathering, and members of 
the I. R. C. felt free to ask questions, 
which the speaker answered with a 
frankness born of deep conviction 
which left a marked impression upon 
the group. 

Early in his address, Dr. Shively 
raised the question of the redistribu- 
tion of the world's supply of raw ma- 
terials. According to his opinion, so- 
ciety cannot hope to solve the prob- 
lem of war till it has solved the prob- 
lem of distribution. He stated that 
Japan today was going about solving 
this problem in her own way — i. e. 
that of conquest. While he did not 
believe this to be the right way to 
solve the problem, he pointed out that 
Great Britain and the United States 
both obtained their rich supply of raw 
materials by this course. In his opin- 
ion, exploitation of the Orient by the 
White man is one of the basic causes 
of the present crisis in Asia. 

Diverting from his central theme 
for a few minutes, Dr. Shively took 
time to point out some of the dangers 
of the scientific age in which we are 
living. Science and scientific methods 
have proceeded too far in advance 
of our understanding of social prob- 
lems. He said, ("We have not yet 
learned to live together"). As an il- 
lustration of what he was speaking 
about, he repeated the message given 
him by a member of the Rotary Club 
in Japan. Said this member, ("Please 
say to the American people and to 
the scientists of America that we 
want to promote science and see it 
promoted, but we are afraid to go 
ahead until people have learned to 
use what has already been discovered 
and invented"). 
The members of the I. R. C. were 



Voi 



surprised to hear the opinions 
by the speaker with regard t 
present war in China. Japan, h e ^ e 
ed, is not intent upon exploit; 
crushing China; rather, she feel s °* 
leadership in the Orient is her r ^ at 
sibility. He pointed out that A 
cans criticize Japan not so much^' 
cause she is leading in the wron ^ 
rection as for setting up herself ^ 
the leader. 1 a * 

The speaker declared that J apa 
attempting to break the strangle?,''' 
that the West has upon the Ori f 
This attempt in Dr. Shively's o^i^' 
is only one of many such attem 10 " 
upon the part of Oriental people^ 
free themselves from the exploit at ; to 
and domination of the stronger w ^ 
ern nations. Japan and China alii- 
want to be rid of unequal treat' * 
trade privileges, and customs co\k, 
tions by foreign officials. J apail ? 
trying to compel China to coope^ 
with her in building a new order j* 
Asia. 

The question was asked if j apa)i 
would prove to be a better colonize* 
ii? Asia than Great Britain. Dr. Shiv* 
ly replied that Japan wants markets 
in China; she also wants the Orient 
to be independent and self-sufficient 
She has determined that three na- 
tions shall constitute the new orda- 
in Asia; Japan, China, and Manchu- 
chuo. The Japanese do not call this 
system colonization, but cooperation 

The question was raised regarding 
the conduct of Japanese soldiers. Dr, 
Shively quoted General Sherman's 
well-known definition, ("War is 
hell") . Commenting upon this state- 
ment, he declared that Sherman was 
correct, and that war cannot be hu- 
manized. When men's passions and 
emotions are fully aroused these 
things are bound to happen. Here fie 
referred to the reported atrocities 
committed by certain Japanese sol- 
diers. 

Someone raised the question why 
the vast majority of Americans feel 
that China rather than Japan should 
take the lead in the Orient. Dr. Shiv- 
ely attributed this attitude to jeal- 
ously on the part of the American 
people toward the progressive Japan- 
ese. 

Dr. Shively was asked to explain 
the deification of the Emperor of Ja- 
pan. He answered this question by 
giving a brief survey of the history 
and legend which mixes to form the 
background for the nation of Japan- 
In spite of the fact that there is no 
authentic history available for this 
people beyond the third century A.D., 
the Japanese are this year celebrating 
the twenty-six hundredth anniversary 
of the founding of the dynasty. D r ' 
Shively pointed out that many current 
beliefs regarding the Emperor of 
pan and the Japanese people are 
founded upon myth. The Japan ese 
consider themselves to be the child re " 
of the gods. The emperor is the livm* 
representative of the gods to the 
tion. Shintoism which does much 
foster such beliefs is a patriotic 
sponsored by the Japanese £° ve . f 

ment. This whole system of " e 

• o way 

serves to unite the nation in a ^ 
difficult for occidental peoples to « 
derstand. Dr. Shively admitted 
attitude of the Japanese pe°P le 
ward their emperor, ("comes danj jj 
ously near to being a religi° n ~~" 
is not a religion").

No. 15 



]Voted Whistler 
Gives Concert 
In Engle Hall 

MacGimsey Will Show 
Unique Musical Talents 
Concert Free To All 

jlr. Robert MacGimsey, noted whis- 
tler and singer of negro spirituals, 
will present a free concert in Engle 
Hall, Saturday evening, December 14, 
a t 8 P. M., under the sponsorship of 
the Annville Branch of the A. A. U. 
W. 

Unparalleled as a whistler, Mr. 
MacGimsey is the world's only three 
tone whistler. In fact, he can not re- 
member the day when he was not able 
to whistle. He has also gained an un- 
usual reputation as a singer of negro 
spirituals, composer and arranger. 
His song, "Sweet Jesus Boy," is one 
of the most famous of his works for 
the concert stage. John Charles Thom- 
as has introduced many of his works 
and Lawrence Tibbett has also per- 
formed some of his numbers. He is 
an eloquent speaker and illustrates 
many of his lectures with his inter- 
pretation of the negro music as well 
as other music. 

Mr. MacGimsey was born in Loui- 
siana, deep in the heart of the South. 
He first began singing in his moth- 
er's church choir. He continued his 
musical study while following the pro- 
fession of law, and later continued 
it in New York. At the present time, 
he is a permanent resident of New 
York. This is a rare privilege and 
opportunity for us to hear so famous 
a person. He has been obtained thru 
the Lebanon Chamber of Commerce 
with the college and the local A. A. 
U. W. furnishing facilities.

Shillo Captains 
Gridders In 1941 

The election of Ed Schillo as cap- 
tain for the L. V. C. football aggre- 
gation for the 1941 season was re- 
leased too late last week for allowing 
proper tribute to be paid to a 
hard-driving player in three sports. 
Schillo plays varsity football, basket- 
ball and baseball. 

Captain-elect Schillo plays either 
half-back position and can also han- 
dle the full-back job when called up- 
on. Ed was also utilized by Coach 
Frock as a signal caller in quite a 
few games this year. His election as 
leader for next year's football team 
evinces the respect that he has gained 
from his team-mates in three years' 
playing of varsity football for Leba- 
non Valley gridiron representatives. 

Last year Schillo played a brilliant 
game of basketball on the Dutchmen 
court team last year that late in the 
season brought coaches and teams to 
the realization that L.V.C. really had a 
ball club. Schillo stood out not only 
as a fine defensive and offensive court 
man, but also as a scorer. Mease, 
leading scorer in the league, was the 
only member of the Valley team who 
racked up more buckets than Schillo. 

Big Ed has played two years as a 
performer on Blue and White dia- 
mond aggregations. In the spring 
sport Schillo is equally adept at han- 
dling the duties of a first-baseman or 
outfielder. Schillo is also respected by 
opposing hurlers for his better than 
average hitting. 



Biology Club Features 
Stars And Superstitions 

The Biology Club will meet this 
evening in the biology lecture room at 
7:30 p.m. The main interests of the 
program will be a story on the con- 
stellations by Edna Rutherford and 
Mlarjorie Holly entitled "A Starry 
Night" and a talk dealing with old 
medical superstitions by Earl Reber 
under the title of " A Man on Omens." 



Yuletide Parties 
Set In Girls' Dorms 

Christmas Plans Started 

In the girls' dormitories the spirit 
of Christmas time is beginning to 
grow as the parlors and rooms are 
decorated for this joyous season. The 
climax of the preparation as far as 
dormitory life is concerned is the 
Christmas parties to be held next 
Wednesday, December 18, at 10 P. M. 
Each hall will have its own party at- 
tended by all of its inhabitants. 

In West Hall the committees have 
been planning for a festive "Night 
Before Christmas" party. During the 
more formal part of the program Bet- 
ty Minnich will give a Christmas 
reading; Hazel Fornoff will play a 
medley of Christmas carols on the 
piano, Emma Catherine Miller will 
sing a soprano solo, and Garneta Sea- 
vers, Hazel Fornoff, and Emma Cath- 
erine Miller will compose a trombone 
trio. Following the singing of carols 
by everyone, gifts with appropriate 
poems are to be presented to each 
girl. Committee heads for the party 
include Mabel Jane Miller, program; 
Phoebe Geyer, refreshments; Garneta 
Seavers, decorations; Frances Prutz- 
man, gifts. 

South Hall parlor lit by candlelight 
will be the scene of that dormitory's 
festivities. The center of attraction 
will be a fireplace with a stocking 
for each girl containing a gift from 
some other South Hallian. The main 
program includes stories of Christmas 
customs in other lands each of which 
will be followed by carols appropriate 
to that country. Laurene Dreas will 
entertain with songs about various 
girls who the others will try to iden- 
tify. Elizabeth Sattazahn heads the 
program committee; Jo Ernst, the 
refreshment commitee, and Marjorie 
Holly, the invitation committee. 

The program for North Hall's cele- 
bration is being planned by Margaret 
Bordwell. Ruth Haverstock and Mary 
Elizabeth Spangler are arranging for 
gifts, and Martha Jane Koontz is in 
charge of refreshments. 

The W. S. G. A. provides refresh- 
ments for all of the parties.

the day was Herm Fritsche who in 
his last bout trounced the captain of 
the opposition to the tune of 5-3. On 
sabers both Frank Zimmerman and 
George Bryce won one of their three 
bouts. 

Following is a schedule of points

Saturday 7 December 7, — Clio 

by Louise Keller 



Dear Diary, 

Gee — this morning passed by like 
"Slow Freight." Nobody can do a 
thing but think — in some cases, worry 
— about tonite. "Gosh, I wonder if it's 
going to be worth all the fuss" — that's 
how we all felt; but by five o'clock 
this P. M., after we all had a call 
to the door by florists' errand boys, 
our enthusiasm hit a new high. 

That "getting-ready" rush between 
five and six-thirty is all rather vague, 
but seven o'clock saw us all calm, se- 
rene and rarin' to go. 

When our gang rolled into Reading 
square the Abraham Lincoln hung out 
all its brightest banners to welcome 
the invading forces — and did we in- 
vade! 

Instead of running the gamut, the 
Clionians lessened the degree of se- 



verity to very charming receiving 
line by Anniversary Prez Schindel 
and escort Erdman. In close succes- 
sion were Mr. and Mrs. Ullery, Miss 
Gillespie, Professor and Mrs. Miller, 
Dr. and Mrs. Struble, Clio president, 
Betty Anne Rutherford, and her es- 
cort, Bob Rapp. 

When the preliminaries were dis- 
posed of, we got down to the serious 
business of the evening — dancing. The 
Royal Manhatters were in top form 
for their appearance. Their arrange- 
ments of "The Five O'clock Whistle" 
and the perennial "Stardust" were re- 
ally smooth, and the same can be said 
of most of the other offerings of the 
evening. Just at this point, we decid- 
ed that Clio dance was "worth the 
fuss."

Compliment 

Although Coach Jerry Frock always 
trys to keep out of the limelight, his 
generous and cooperative attitude 
must be recognized in the columns of 
La Vie. In a small college, a news- 
paper has a difficult time to obtain 
news that everybody on campus and 
vicinity has not heard. We greatly 
appreciate Coach Frock's willingness 
to release his exclusive sports news in 
La Vie. 



L.V. Culture 

Compared with the cultural advan- 
tages of a college or university sit- 
uated in a large city, Lebanon Valley 
students have relatively few oppor- 
tunities to regularly attend profes- 
sional stage productions, operas, con- 
certs and exhibitions. However, we do 
have the privilege of attending plays 
and concerts given on our own stage 
by our own students. A few weeks 
ago the Wig and Buckle Club present- 
ed a play. How many students and 
faculty members attended? A small 
number of students and an even smal- 
ler number of faculty members put 
in their appearance. No one has any 
reason to complain about the lack of 
cultural benefits when he doesnot take 
advantage of those which are on cam- 
pus. Next week the Junior Class will 
give "Poor Richard." Instead of at- 
tending the Astor, visit Engle Hall, 
and then, on Saturday night, come and 
hear an outstanding american artist, 
Mr. Robert MacGimsey. This is an 
unusual occurrence especially be- 
cause there will be no admission 
charge. Shall we raise our cultural 
level a little higher by isting these 
events as necessary appointments?

front resembled greatly the Shake- 
spearian type of stage. The colorM 
and really gorgeous costumes which 
the characters wore added much to 
the success of the play. But, of course, 
the high quality of the acting abilitv 
shown by the players was the main 
reason for its warm reception. Of all 
the portrayals that of the old rascal 
Jlack Falstaff was perhaps the best 
with those of the handsome and 
charming Prince Hal and the daring 
and impetuous Hotspur running close 
seconds. The interpretation of King 
Henry's role was also quite good. 

All in all, it isn't an exaggeration 
to say that the group was thoroughly 
pleased with the play and everyone 
is ready to pay Rose Valley another 
visit very soon. 



Dutching It 

with Ira Asaph 

The publishing of last week's com- 
munication has brought much latent 
talent into the light of day; so much, 
in fact, that Ira is inclined to think 
that some people must be desperate 
to break into print or they wouldn't 
go in for the dirt-digging game. Be 
that as it may, Ira is always ready to 
give a struggling young artist a hand, 
and to get his column written gratis; 
thus, the learned and informative 
epistle which follows. 
Deerest Ira: 

I think U R onederful, but dew U 
realize that U have bin unfair? U 
have knot given a lowdown on th 
Freshman Class? Fer your informa- 
tion I am writing a strictly confiden- 
tial report — based on fact & 2 B 
used at your discretion. 

Y dew they call Don Staley "little 
jizus" ? Is it because Jane Baker keeps 
saying, "No"? 

Well, the waiter fone has a new 
admirer in B. Dougherty (could be 
Smitty, could be). 

And have U noticed Jyni Bernhard's 
sudden and unwavering interest in 
Chem Lab? My, my Lover Tyson is 
at it agin. 

Despite the J. B.'s blitzkreig, Bar- 
bie Converse escapes purty nearly un- 
scathed. Either Kreegers' used to 
getting in & out of tight places or 
practice has made perfect. 

"Weep no more my lady" might 
well be Mickey's new song after los- 
ing her hanky at the Conserve For- 
mal. We find her using Shakespeare 
instead. Remember Romeo? 

Emma Catha Miller is worried. She 
just can't make up her mind. She 
wavers b-tween Gilly & Charles John 
(or is it John Charles?) Neumann. 
In her opinion they are the only tall 
boys on campus. 

Gosh, life goes on & Chump Pol- 
locks life is Tippy. It is rumored 
that very shortly "life" might go 
right on past Chump. 

Lehi Foltz finds Dick Bell an im- 
portant factor in her daily life. Y 
else the smiles, sneezes & sugary 
voice whenever he is in a 10 mile ra- 
dius? 

Jean Garland uses alternating cur- 
rent switching frum one to the other. 
Harold Mauer and Jim Bachman R 
the particles who b-come charged. 

"Faithful forever" is Betty Grube, 
but there is no use denying that she 
enjoys hearing Drummer-Boy Phil- 
lips beat it out. 

After 2 years Touslehead Mease is 
still handicapped. First it were 
Freshmen Rules, now Basketball 
Practice, but that's alright— I haven't 
noticed D. T. spending many evenings 
at North Hall. And after all Dottie 
Jean and Moe do have a lease fer 
one the lumber yards piles. Reser- 
vation are also found fer Penny Ken- 
nan & Carl Weidman. Ditto for Joy 
Marie Shannon & Jew Boy. 

And oh, Ira, how could you miss 
Ruth Haverstock & Bob Ness — not to 
mention Evy Ling & Charlie Frantz? 

As fer Seavers, Fainoff & Minnick 
— well, they have me stumped. There- 
fer your guess is as good as mine. I 
make up for the lack of info about 
these gals here are some sidelights. 

Dean Angst continued affection for 
Alma Mammy or is it Annie Mam- 
my? 

Jimmy, Nick Dorazio gets hungry 
at the queerest times or else there is 
another attraction at North Hall. 

Do U realize that seeing Blind Man 
Matala & Nickie Witmeyer together 
is getting 2 b a habit? 

Ira, if anybody can tell me U should 
be able 2! Y is Soft Shoulders 
Schmaltzer Kissenger's latest victim? 
What about that third finger, left 
hand Kissy? ? ? 

Under the circumstances all the luv 
I can spare, OPERATOR 59. 

P. S.: Dew U want to know more? 
Well then R. S. V. P. 




IS THE NAME 

OF A 
WILLISTORN.D. 
RESIDENT!"/ 



jazz notes 

by Maurie Erdman 

And who is it this week? Why it's the man who plays the blues — 
Woody Herman and his Blues on Parade. 

Among the six types of modern dance music perhaps the two toughest 
types are blues and boogie woogie. Although "on the ball" as far as B. W. 
goes this band has really made a name for itself playing the blues. Under 
the baton of a broad-shouldered, good natured giant the ork continually 
takes first place for blues. Some of the famous songs put out by the 
leader are Blues Upstairs, Blues Downstairs, Casbah Blues, Farewell Blues, 
Blues on Parade and a hundred others. 

The set-up includes 3 trombones, 3 trumpets, 4 saxes, and 4 rhythm. 
Woody backs up the reed with his own brand of plenty hot clarinet. One 
trumpet man doubles on trombone when heavy slip-horn is desired as in 
Bessies' Blues. 

On vocals Woody takes the spot for occasional novelties. Starlet of the 
group is the 19-year-old songstress Dillagene who joined the band when 
Woody was playing at the Oklahoma A. & M. Junior Prom. Some of the 
students talked Woody into getting the co-ed up on the stage with the 
band. To date she is still with them and she rightly deserves the post. 

Honoring the band Decca has released an album of six of his greatest 
works. Any Herman fan should chalk this group up on the don't-miss 
list for a greater collection of blues is hard to find. To prove his ability 
in boogie beats look up Indian Boogie in the recent Decca album of boogie 
music. 

The band may be heard at irregular intervals over the N. B. C. hook- 
ups for at present they are on tour. 



Stage Wh ispers 

"Poor Richard" is going into its last week of production and Tuesday 
will be the day for the juniors to shine through the valiant dramatic attempts 
of their classmates. After attending part of the rehearsal last night (Mon- 
day), I felt that I would like to tell you all about this play, but then that 
wouldn't be cricket, would it? So I will have to confine my efforts to the 
highlights of rehearsal. 

All the characters present did remarkably well with their parts. It is the 
custom around here to wait until the last act really to learn play lines, but 
this seems to be the exception. Only one actor was stopped by his cue, and 
that was quickly remedied. We're sure that you will like Jack Dobbs in his 
portrayal of Lord Stormont, the British ambassador to France. His role is 
made complete with a smooth British accent and even a little monocle — a 
thing which has not been seen on our campus for many a year. We hope that 
Jack isn't too nervous on the big night, or a little glue may have to be called 
into play. Another really Revolutionary note in this play is the snuff box 
used by Bud Bolti We are anxiously waiting for the arrival of the cos- 
tumes to see if tljey will help to complete this picture of the eighteenth 
century. In passing I would like to throw a bouquet to Pete Geyer for her 
realistic portrayal as the hostess of the inn. I believe that this was men- 
tioned before in thjis column, but it is certainly worth mentioning again. All 
of the characters h>ve improved so much since the first few rehearsals that 
the play seems to ' be entirely new. 

And now a word about the play itself. It is a story of romance and in- 
trigue of the period immediately preceding the French Revolution. This is 
subordinated to the story of Franklin in France seeking aid for the colonies 
who were still engaged in the American Revolution. Surely the combina- 
tion of two political upsets, an elopement, and a dramatic meeting of the 
British and American representatives in France at a time like this should be 
a drawing card for; everyone in the school. Almost any member of the junior 
class will be only {too glad to sell you a ticket, so let's all support "Poor 
Richard."

desired destination. Having been 
thus slapped with the glove, Bob 
leaned over, gathered the lady in his 
arms and esculated her up the steps. 
"Puff! Puff!" He made it! Maybe the 
carrying of mail bags last year had 
something to do with the success.

Day Student Men's 
Basketball League 
Begins Season 

Seniors Halted By 
Frosh Quintet, 54-38 

Play in the' Day Students' Basket- 
ball league began last week when the 
Seniors crushed the Frosh 54-38 on 
Thursday and the Juniors defeated 
the Sophs 50-32 the following day at 
noon. Both games were closely con- 
tested in the first half, but the win- 
ners ran up the score in the second 
half of both games. 

The Frosh took a 11 to 7 lead at 
quarter over the Seniors, but dropped 
behind to 24-22 at half time when 
Gingrich began to hit the hoop for 
the Srs. in the second period. Rakow 
and Gingrich teamed up to contribute 
24 points in the last half to send the 
Seniors into the lead by a larger mar- 
gin. Nichols provided a laugh in the 
last quarter when he took a poke at 
the Frosh basket. Third quarter score 
was 38-30, but the Frosh wilted in the 
last canto to give a 16 point lead to 
the Seniors by the end of the contest. 

The Juniors surprised everyone by 
trouncing the lanky Sophs by such a 
score. The Sophs last year placed 
second in league standings and were 
the choice to defeat the Juniors on 
Friday. First quarter found a hard 
battling team of Jrs. on the long end 
of a 11-9 score. By half-time this 
lead was increased to 24-17. Boltz took 
a number of passes from his mates 
in the last half to rack up 12 points 
in the last two quarters. Youse con- 
tributed to the victory with a fine de- 
fensive game. Metro and Uhrich were 
the best for the Sophs. 



On Tuesday evening, December 
17, at 8 p.m., in Engle Hall, the 
class of '42 will present the annual 
junior class play, the production 
is Louis Evan Shipman's "Poor 
Richard," a four-act comedy based 
on Benjamin Franklin's adventures 
in France. Admission price is 25 
cents.

RALPH MEASE 



SPORTRAIT 

We take occasion this week to break 
our traditional custom of honoring a 
Senior athlete, by reviewing the sen- 
sational career of the captain of our 
basketball team, Ralph Mease. 

Five feet seven inches tall, and 
weighing 150 pounds, packing grim 
determination and the will to win in 
every ounce, this blonde tosser has 
won the admiration of players, fans 
and coaches. 

A marked man from the very start, 
he blazed through his high school bas- 
ketball era by racking up points in 
swift succession. Shooting and pass- 
ing with unerring accuracy, he soon 
earned the reputation of being a ball 
player that had to be watched con- 
stantly. Consternation reigned among 
the ranks of the opponents when this 
blonde whirlwind was loose. Never 
was he known to concede a foe a point. 
They had to fight for what they got, 
just as he fought for his success. His 
spirit was contagious and his team- 
mates adopted his attitude to put on 
a great show for the fans, winning 
more than their share of games. 

At the end of his high school term, 
he took his diploma and matriculated 
at Lebanon Valley College, where he 
has continued his glorious career. An 
outstanding member of an outstand- 
ing Freshman team, Mease led the 
squad in scoring. To prove his versa- 
tility, Moe developed into a short stop 



Annual Frosh-Soph Blitzkreig

Sports f^Jn Shorts 
by betty 



With basketball practices in full 
swing and every one being loop con- 
scious a discussion on new girls' bas- 
ketball rules would not be out of 
place. The major change for 1940-41 
is the rule which is as follows: 
"Whether a player receiving the ball 
lands with both feet touching the floor 
simultaneously or successively, she 
may move one foot once, or more 
than once in any direction provided 
that the other foot is kept at its ini- 
tial point of contact with the floor. 
This latter foot is called the pivot 
foot. In releasing the ball, the pivot 
foot may be lifted, or a jump made, 
provided that the ball is released be- 



fore one or both feet again touch 
the floor. The pivot foot may be 
dragged up to, but not beyond the oth- 
er foot." 

At a meeting of Philadelphia and 
New Jersey coaches this rule was 
dubbed the "varsity drag." 

Other changes are: 

If one official has a higher rating 
than the other, she shall act as referee 
throughout the entire game ; any play- 
er • may request time out ; a player's 
re-entry into the game may be made 
during any quarter. 

Previously the officials alternated 
the duties of referee and umpire. 
Time out is now permitted by any 
girl because often the captain is at 
the other end of the two-diversion 
court. Heretofore a girl could re-en- 
ter the game twice but not in the same 
quarter. 



that stopped everything within three 
feet of his position. His sophomore 
year brought him greater fame. In 
his first year of Varsity basketball 
competition, he led the league in scor- 
ing, a feat hitherto unequalled. At 
the close of last year's court cam- 
paign, he was honored by his team- 
mates by being elected captain of this 
year's squad. 



Now the start of the campaign is 
drawing near. All eyes are focused 
on this lad to see if he can repeat 
his performance of last year. We 
feel confident that such fight and spir- 
it that Mease possesses is enough to 
carry him and his team through an- 
other great season. So all we can say 
is, "Good luck, Twin."

Churches Receive 
L. W. R. Deputations 

Life Work Recruits sent out four 
deputations last Sunday, December 8, 
to conduct services in as many church- 
es. At the evening worship service at 
the Mechanicsburg U. B. Church, 
Clinton Zimmerman delivered the 
sermon, Phoebe Geyer was devotional 
chairman, and musical numbers were 
provided by Margaret Boyd and John 
Chambers with Betty Shillott as ac- 
companist. 

The Christian Endeavor service at 
Shope's U. B. on the Hummelstown 
Circuit was conducted by a Life Work 
Recruit deputation consisting of 
Charles Wolfe, speaker, and Doris 
Smith and Helen Morrison for the 
special music. 

Anna Mae Bomberger conducted 
devotions at the morning service in 
the Annville Evangelical Church 
where Frances Prutzman was the 
speaker. 

Next Sunday, December 15, Richard 
Rodes will preach at the Harrisburg 
Colonial Park U. B. Church. 



Delphians' Open-House

7, from 8 to 11 to take care of those 
people who found nothing to do that 
night proved to be very successful. 
Everyone enjoyed the games — cards, 
ping-pong, and others — as well as the 
usual warmly welcomed refreshments 
which the society offered. Mrs. P. A. 
Wallace, Mrs. A. H. M. Stonecipher, 
and Mrs. G. A. Richie acted as chap- 
erones to the group.

What must be noted is the fact that 
only one man of the six who fought 
had ever been in any competition be- 
fore Saturday. That man, Frank Zim- 
merman has fought for about a year 
on the Harrisburg Y. M. C. A. team. 
One man, Herm Fritsche had had 
only six weeks training before the 
match. To be able to hold experienced 
opponents coached by an expert to 
such a small margin of victory is cer- 
tainly commendable. 

The team has contracted for a re- 
turn engagement with the Philadel- 
phia group on March 22 in the Alumni 
Gymnasium. The next match is signed 
for January 11 at Lafayette when 
stiffer competition is anticipated. 

Good luck to a hard-working group 
of young men.

Ralph Shay Scores Hit 
As Poor Richard " 



Greek Students 
Ask For Aid 

Lebanon Valley College has been 
asked by the American-Hellenic Com- 
mittee for Medical Aid to Greece to 
lend its support to the program which 
has been initated on the campus of 
Columbia University. LA VIE COL- 
LEGIENNE is acting upon the re- 
quest of Dr. Clyde A. Lynch, presi- 
dent of Lebanon Valley College, by 
presenting this matter to the student 
body and asking them for their sup- 
port. 

One need not be reminded of the 
vast cultural heritage which has been 
presented to the world of today by 
the early inhabitants of Greece. The 
college curriculum is savored with the 
contributions of Greece, home of the 
lovers of beauty and seekers of truth. 
Today the children of this beneficent 
land are in the battle-line, fighting to 
preserve their freedom. Students and 
professors have laid aside their books 
and pens to take up with reluctance 
the cannon and the gun. Liberty or 
death has become the slogan of every 
man, woman, and child. Many are 
killed; many more are wounded. Shad 
those who thrive on culture deny aid 
to the mother that so faithfully nur- 
sed culture in its infancy? Shall 
those wounded be permitted to pass 
°n without a taste of proper medical 
Mention to their individual cases? 

The American-Hellenic Committee 
f°i Medical Aid to Greece was organ- 
Be d to insure financial support in the 
care of the wounded Greeks. Alumni 
" f Gree k origin on the campus of Co - 
u mbia University initated it. Leba- 
non Galley College has been asked to 
su PPort it.

The Juniors have scored again. 
Their play, "Poor Richard" which 
was given in Engle Hall on Tuesday 
night was such a decided success that 
people are still talking about it. The 
choice of play, which was at first 
thought to be a little unwise, turned 
out to be the wisest one that could 
possibly have been made. To an audi- 
ence which had been stuffed with 
comedy for the past four years, the 
novelty of a historical play was really 
a relief. 

For the high spots of the play, let 
us suggest the dramatic ending of act 
I which left everyone with that very 
good American feeling which is so 
important to a country. Pete Geyer 
as the hostess of the inn did a very 
good job as we predicted she would 
do. Her quick flare-up followed im- 
mediately by a sudden change to calm- 
ness showed us that she had been neg- 
lected on campus until now. The scene 
in which the Comtesse first makes her 
appearance was enhanced no end by 
the flirtation between Bob Weiler and 
Louise Boger behind the Comtesse's 
back. It wasn't the very obvious stage 
coquettry, but was more subtle, con- 
sisting of slight, coy glances now and 
then, — just enough to give the proper 
effect. There seems to be varying 
differences of opinion concerning the 
Comtesse; some say that she was very 
good, and some say that she slightly 
overacted. But whatever the case may 
be, we may be sure that Carolyn did 
a convincing job. The most powerful 
scene of the whole play was the one 
between the English ambassador and 
Benjamin Franklin. It was dramatic 
to the very highest degree, the indig- 
nation displayed on the part of Frank- 
lin was really wonderful. The way in

Fliers Sight End 
Of Semester's Course 
Dual and Solo Hops Made 

The Lebanon Valley flyers have 
been progressing at a rapid rate not 
only in the air, but also in their course 
of studies. Don Bartley, George Bryce, 
and Richard Zentmoyer are expecting 
to complete their dual cross-country 
flghts by the end of this week if the 
weather smiles in their favor. The 
cross-country trip is taken from 
Harrisburg to Reading to Lancaster 
and back to Harrisburg. After ac- 
complishing this feat, they will then 
solo over the same route. 

Bobb Rapp and Joe Gittlen, just 
behind the other three L. V. birdmen, 
are now practicing spins, figure "8's,*' 
power turns, and other maneuvers. 
They too will shortly be flying cross- 
country. 

The ground school, which is held 
in the physics lecture room, will be 
concluded about January 15, 1941. 
Every Monday, Tuesday, and Wednes- 
day evenings for two to three hours 
have found the aviators engrossed in 
this tiresome part of an otherwise 
pleasant course. 




& (Efjrtetmasi Eeberie 

By President Lynch 
As I sat at my study desk last Fri- 
day evening I saw a beautifully de- 
signed gift card, from whose blue 
background were raised golden-hued 
letters to convey to me the seasonal 
greeting of MERRY CHRISTMAS. 
Having became habituated to this ex- 
pression through many years of repe- 
tition, I must confess that the words 
made no particular impression on my 
mind. The sequence of my thoughts 
was something like this: "Isn't that 
an unusually beautiful and expensive 
card?" "I wonder who sent it?" Dis- 
covering the name of a friend now 
wintering at Daytona Beach, I began 
to contrast the balmy climate of that 
Florida resort with the severe weath- 
er forecast for Annville, which was 
about to be overtaken by a cold wave 
sweeping eastward from the frozen 
plains of the Middle West. Then my 
unrestrained thoughts leaped across 
the continent in anticipation of a pro- 
posed post-Christmas visit to the state 
of sun-kissed oranges, semi-tropical 
trees, and roses. Pasadena, Holly- 
wood, San Diego, Mexico: these and 
other magic places began to loom 
large on the expanding horizon of 
my unbridled imagination — serious 
business and recreating pleasure — the 
mixed prose and poetry of a mid-win- 
ter vacation! 

Suddenly I saw two cards lying on 
my desk: double vision, of course; 
and that not due to my having in- 
dulged in anything stronger than 
skimmed milk at dinner (I addressed 
a W. C. T. U. meeting earlier in the

vidual students, followed by group 
singing of Christmas carols. Coach 
Ullery will show some slide pictures 
that he has taken this fall around 
campus. The refreshments will be 
furnished by the Y. M. and the Men's 
Senate. 



Dormitory Students Feast 
In Holiday Style Tonight 

Eddie Prepares Christmas Banquet 



Thursday night at 6 o'clock the 
dormitory students will gather in 
North Hall for the annual Christmas

To Include Poetry, 
Music And Reading 

At 6 o'clock on Friday morning a 
brass quartet composed of Paul Fish- 
er, Don Bartley, Fred Shadle, and 
Ralph Manwiller, will herald the 
YMCA— YWCA Christmas service. 
The program this year will combine 
Christmas scripture, poetry and music 
in a unique way. The scripture read- 
ers will be Lloyd Grail, and Charles 
Wolfe; the poetry readers, Fern Poet 
and Phoebe Geyer. The part of the 
three kings will be sung by Eddie 
Creegar, Bob Weiler, and Ralph Man- 
wieler. Other music numbers will in- 
clude a duet by Doris Smith and Eve- 
lyn Stine, a solo by Margaret Bord- 
well, a piano and organ duet by Vir- 
ginia Goodman and Anna Mae Bom- 
berger and "Away in a Manger" sung 
by the Thomas children. 



Whistler Lectures, 
Sings In Engle Hall 

Last Saturday evening, December 
14, Mr. Robert MacGimsey of New 
York, noted whistler and singer of 
negro spirituals, presented a free con- 
cert in Engle Hall. 

To a small but appreciative au- 
dience Mr. MacGimsey first demon- 
strated his incredible ability to whis- 
tle two and three tones together ir. 
perfect harmony. He then gave a 
short lecture on the functions and 
policies of the American Association 
of Composers, Authors, and Publish- 
ers, of which he is a member. The 
third part of his program he devoted 
to singing negro spirituals which he 
himself composed. Outstanding were 
his interpretations of Shadrach, Me- 
shach, Abendigo, Jeri-Jericho, and 
Sweet Little Jesus Boy. 

The Annville Branch of the A. A. 
U. W. sponsored Mr. MacGimsey and 
afforded Lebanon Valley students the 
'privilege of hearing this artist.

The Highwayers 

By Alf Noi.e 

Dear Readers: 

This week your reporter places 
down that pen which has spurted so 
much red ink these many months and 
substitutes a blue medium of truth. 
Losing that spark which ignited those 
pages of the past, I have wished to 
leave the campus propaganda to an- 
other as I slip away to return from 
time to time with a friendly literary 
contribution. It is my desire that all 
who have suffered at my journalistic 
expense shall join me as we bury the 
tomahawk and the "Red Book" be- 
neath the campus turf. 

Before I turn away I should not 
fail to wish you Christmas happiness. 
As you turn homeward bound this 
year, and as you rush about prepar- 
ing for material joy for you and 
yours, do not overshadow the true 
meaning of Christmas. There are 
millions of people in the war-torn 
countries today who shall miss the 
duplication of a fraction of our pleas- 
ures because there are men who elim- 
inated that day from their material- 
istic calendar. 

Yours exposed, 

BOB NICHOLS 



!The kittle ^People 

A Christmas Story by Beckie 

The sunshine of the afternoon melt- 
ed into the copper gleam of the sunset, 
and the little town of Siena began to 
close its doors and prepare to settle 
down under the sable cover of night. 
The gate of the little wayside inn cat- 
erwauled on its hinges giving way be- 
fore a disreputable looking mare bear- 
ing a lanky figure that seemed almost 
a shadow among the lengthening 
darknesses. 

The tall silhoutte in black slid 
slowly to the ground, turned his be- 
draggled mare over to the stable-boy 
and strode into the warm atmosphere 
of the inn. Treading softly, almost 
stealthily, the man wended his way to 
a small table in the corner and sat 
down throwing back the hood of his 
robe and revealing a slender, almost 
wolfish face from which shone pierc- 
ing eyes flashing with the reflections 
of a cunning and discerning mind 
— the whole topped by a mat of strin- 
gy black hair that was once in the 
cast curled at the ends. 

He made arrangements for a bed 
for the night and ordered dinner and 
a bottle of wine. While waiting for the 
food, he sat aloof and sullen in his 
corner ignoring the companionship of 
the fireside but listening intently, 
interestedly, sometimes scowling, 
sometimes flashing a quick, silent 
smile of disdain. 

Things were happening in the 
countryside, in the state, and in the 
country as a whole to be talked about. 
The men, heated by the fire and the 
vacilating fever of semi-drunkeness 
were bawling out their remarks with 
abandon. Why not? It was a holiday 
eve. Was not tomorrow Christmas? A 
man rose unsteadily to his feet. 

'I offer a toast to the Republic — 
our glorious Republic, our beautiful 
Republic — country of sunshine and 
wealth, beauty and health." 

From beside the fire arose a little 
wizened figure from which rolled 
bitter words. 

"My friends, drink to your Republic. 
Drink to its beauty and its wealth, 
but whose wealth, I ask you? Yours 
and mine? Yes, rightfully. But whose in 
actualty? In Florence you will find 
great wealth — great palaces — there's 
where the wealth of your great Re- 
public lies. Your wealth and my 
wealth, yes, but claimed by a power 
greater than you or I — a power that 
rose from little more than you and I, 
but a power that is cunning and 
grasping. Oh, yes! The Medici have

Another play is over and the actors may settle back and breathe again. 
However, one actor, namely Jack Dobbs, almost forfeited his right to ever 
breathe again. It all happened when through a misunderstanding Frank 
Zimmerman was left in Harrisburg with no apparent means of covering 
the twenty-three miles between here and there. When he did arrive he was 
mad enough to really land on Dobbs, but the matter was all straightened 
out, and peace and calm reigned over all. But before the whole affair had 
been settled, Harry Drendel had been made up for a nice job of pinch-hit- 
ting. Excitement for the kiddies and heart attacks for the directors. 

And now for my main axe to grind. It seems that your columnist has 
heard on many occasions that there isn't enough to do around this school; 
that there aren't enough things that are free or at least very cheap. So 
what does Wig and Buckle do but plan to give a play cycle, or rather a ser- 
ies of them. The day arrives for the castings and lo and behold no one 
comes out for them. So, thinking that it wasn't publicized enough, try-outs 
are postponed until the next day and a BIG notice placed on all bulletin 
boards. The same thing happens again, only this time there are a few 
people to try out. Result: The poor student directors have to draft charac- 
ters from the ranks, the spontaneous spirit of the thing is lost, and the 
situation becomes discouraging all around. Now something is the matter 
with this system. When we try to give you something to do on those 
long, cold nights when you just can't stay out all the time, you really 
should be willing to help us help you. YOU HAVE TO MEET US HALF- 
WAY, AND A LITTLE CO-OPERATION IS DUE TO US. It means work 
for the members of Wig and Buckle; no money is being made out of it; you 
really have no basis for objecting to it. In a few weeks there will be more

done much for our great Republic, 
but at whose expense? Ours, my 
friends. Who sweats and toils and dies 
so that this may be a great Republic? 
We do. Drink your toast to the Re- 
public. I drink to the toil, the tears 
of our wives and children, and the 
blood of our friends." 

Silence dripped draggingly from 
ceiling and walls. The men knew of 
what he was speaking — of whom he 
was speaking. For years they had 
been paying the price of the glory of a 
great family goaded on by the theories 
of a semi-mythical figure whom they 
knew not whether to call prince or 
demon — one called Machiavelli who 
condoned the barbarous cruelties 
growing out of state ambitions. 

The toast was not drunk, and the 
gayety died into a somber hum of dis- 
cussion — discussion that must not be 
too noised abroad, within or without. 

The man in the corner finished his 
dinner and was seemingly meditating 
over his wine, casting sightless 
glances at the group of men in the 
room. His thoughts wound themselves 
into threads of reverie. 

Little men, these. What right had 
they to question the great? They were 
only part of a scheme, a scheme of 



empire, of government, and of wealth. 
Little men with little minds. Who gave 
those minds the right to conceive 
ideas. Long after they had ceased to 
exist men would be building powerful 
empires by the most convenient means. 
Why were they all gathered here, 
anyway? Oh, yes! Tomorrow is 
Christmas. Christmas, hmm ! They 
celebrate the birth of a man Who 
taught compassion and humility. Com- 
passion and humility — bah! I am al- 
most tempted to laugh. Fine for little 
people such as these, but where in 
greatness and unity and power is 
there place for compassion and hu- 
mility? 

A child quietly entered the room 
and settled herself on the settle in the 
corner. The man sat and stared at 
her for a long time as she played 
with a dirty little bunch of rags — 
evidently a doll. She was a beautiful 
child; there was something golden and 
cherubic about her under the streaks 
of grime and the dirty clothes that 
covered her little body. She was a 
child of little people — a simple im- 
mature being who could content her- 
self playing with a crumby bunch of 
lifeless rags which was probably her

Frock And Intrieri 
Coaching Yearlings 

With varsity practices well under

call to the Freshman basketball hope- 
fuls. Sixteen yearlings responded to 
the call and have been engaging in 
strenuous workouts in an effort to 
develop efficient teamplay. 

On the whole, the squad averages 
well near the six foot mark in height 
and some of the boys have displayed 
a definite familiarity with a basket- 
ball. Coach Intrieri has been assist- 
ing Frock to teach the first year men 
some of the essential plays of the 
varsity, so that the men will not be 
handicapped upon their promotion 
next year. 

Those answering the call were Mor-

ly, Russo, Neidig, Dorazio, Newman, 
Edwards, Kern, H. Miller, Hoffmeis- 
ter, Carbald, Light, and Wolfe.

The man looked at her closely. "My 
child, may you never learn to forsake 
Remember well you mother's prayers 
and the wisdom of her teaching." 

He turned and slowly walked away, 
shoulders bent under the weight of 
the humanity he had forsaken. He 
signified to the innkeeper his desire 
to retire and was led to his bed. 

All night, the gentleman tossed and 
rolled, sleeping fitfully and waking 
often. In his dreams he saw flashes of 
horror. He saw men whipped into 
slavery, tortured faces, hungry bodies, 
chained hands — and over all the sneer 
ing face of power. He saw a little girl 
beautiful and golden with black eyes, 
beseeching eyes, and hands reaching 
to help a fellow child and suddenly 
trodden into the dust by a huge boot — 
the boot of power. All about he saw 
turmoil and pain and over all a 
strange face, sometimes that of a 
baby, sometimes that of a man crown- 
ed with thorns, saddened and tor- 
tured, whispering, "Compassion and 
humility. Remember compassion and 
humility." 

With the first rays of dawn, the 
man was glad to arise from his bed. 
He slowly gathered up his robe and 
tread quietly into the entrance room 
of the inn. As he was about to leave, 
he spied the child asleep on the settle 
in the corner. He went over to her and 
looked closely at her face relaxed in 
sleep. 

"You are beautiful, little girl. May 
you always be kind and good. And I 
hope your kindness and your goodness 
will teach you true humility and com- 
passion, and never forsake your fel- 
lowmen." 

He took three gold pieces from his 
purse, placed them in the limp hand 
of the sleeping child, and closed the 
little fist on them. 

"Niccolo Machiavelli wishes you a 
very Merry Christmas, Maria, and a 
full realization of the implications of 
your name." 

The copper gleams of dawn were 
approaching the brillance of day as 
the gate of the inn caterwauled on its 
hinges, and a lean figure in black on 
a bedraggled mare wound his way out 
onto the road and turned toward 
Florence, carrying with him unknown 
thoughts and schemes.

SPORTRAIT 
While glancing through the roster 
of three-letter men at Lebanon Val- 
ley, we came across the name of a 
Junior, who, although an outstanding 
athlete, has received little mention of 
his ability. 

He comes from a small town high 
school that has produced a lot of 
good men, one of them recently grad 
uated from L. V. C. The lads in his 
town play because they love the game, 
not for its rewards. He has ever 
carried this ideal with him, and after 
finishing his scholastic career, con 
tinued his education at this Annville 
institution. 

He decided to play football, altho 
he had never played the game in high 
school. His desire to be an active 
participant in all sports urged him 
on. It was no mistake that he came 
to play football because his play at 
his end position has brought joy to 
the L. V. followers. Hard charging, 
hard tackling, and good pass catching, 
has earned him the role of a sixty 
minute man, although he never play- 
ed football before! 

His athletic ability was again dis- 
played on the basketball floor, where 
he teamed up to become an important 
cog in the famed sophomore machine. 

Then came baseball, which sport is 
perhaps his best. A heavy hitter, and 
an excellent infielder, he has been an 
outstanding performer on the dia- 
mond. 

Don Staley has done much for 
sports at Lebanon Valley College. His 
play has been sparkling in whatever 
contest he has been in. A fighter to 
the last whistle, Don is a player's 
player. Long may his kind continue 
at the home of the Blue and White. 



"Jan Und Gayse" Is 
German Club's Play 

A one act German play, Jan und 
Geyse, by Tyck, has been selected by 
the German Club for production late 
in February. It is a comedy which 
has five characters, three male and 
two female. The scene of action is 
a tailor shop. A collection of musical 
clocks which the tailor keeps adds a 
fantastical element to the romantic 
comedy. 

Casting of the play will be complet- 
ed immediately after the Christmas 
vacation. Miss Lietzau is the direc- 
tor and will be assisted by Mr. Rob- 
ert Spohn. 

Final plans for the German night, 
January 17, will be made at the next 
club meeting on Tuesday, January 14. 



The other day, much to our surprise, we received this letter from an 
interested sport fan of Lebanon Valley College, and so we take this occa- 
sion to print it, with the writer's permission, of course. 
Dear Joe: 

I've been reading your column for the past few weeks, and have 
been looking for any basketball news that you might be printing. 
As you can guess by my opening sentence, I'm a rabid L. V. C. quin- 
tet follower. I've never missed a home game in the past four years. 
I've seen good teams and I've seen some pretty bad teams that the 
Dutchmen have put on the floor. 

Last year, the Valley lost its first four contests, and then came 
back strong to be a threat throughout the entire second half of 
league play. I gathered that this was due to the introduction of a 
new system of play by your new coach, Mike Intrieri. He certainly 
did wake up those boys in the uniforms. I noticed a type of team 
spirit that a Lebanon Valley squad never before has displayed. Why, 
I saw Frank Kuhn sitting on the bench clapping and shouting, urging 
his teammates on to victory. Along with him was a red-headed fel- 
low. Smith, I think his name is. They were in there rooting for 
their ball players win or lose. 

Now Joe, I'm coming to my peeve or gripe or whatever you 
want to call it. Why in the name of Heaven doesn't the L. V. C. 
campus wake up to the realization that they ought to be out there 
cheering for the team. Yes, I know, you'll say that they are cheer- 
ing. Well, if you think that screeching some half-baked dame sit- 
ting behind me does, is cheering, well I'll take my thirty-five cents 
and go watch Lebanon High School play. 

Do you realize, Joe, that outside of the ball game there is noth- 
ing to hold the interest of the crowd. If the game is lousy what do 
they get for their money? Nothing. Why can't your Alma Mater 
think of something or do something that will make fellows like 
myself want to come back, even if we know the game will be lousy ? 

You know, there is something about the spirit of young college 
kids that fascinates me. Some places they really make the old folks 
want to come back time and time again just to see the youth let 
loose. Take the exhibitions at Penn before the Cornell game, it was 
swell to watch, a bit rough but swell. Did L. V. C. have a pep ses- 
sion before its traditional football game with Albright? Not that 
I've heard of. Why, I don't know, but I think the student body ought 
to wake up and follow its team not silently, but verbally, loudly, 
and demonstratively. 

Why don't you have your German band at the games? Why 
don't you have your cheer leaders organize the cheering a bit? Why 
doesn't the student body ring some cow bells, blow horns, sing some 
songs, and wake the town up? 

I'll be willing to wager that if the student body of Lebanon 
Valley College puts on a little show at its basketball games, it will 
be packing the L. H. S. gym at every game with people willing to 
pay to see college kids having some fun. 

I sincerely hope that you'll do something Joe, that will rectify 
these blunders that some big wig along the line has made. 

Sincerely yours, An Interested Fan. 
Perhaps we should here state that the above letter is not the opinion 
of this column, but instead will say it is the opinion of this pillar and we 
hope that some of you "college kids" will crack wise. 

Just a football note in passing. Down Albright way, the Varsity pick- 
ed on its all-opponent eleven such L. V. C. performers as Grabusky, Schmalze 
and Rakow, with Kuhn and Bosnyak receiving mention from the coaches for 
their play. 

With the printing of the above letter, we find we haven't much room for 
anything else, but we feel that nothing else will be needed if the letter is 
really read and digested. It must be said that pre-game enthusiasm on 
this campus is far from enthusiastic. In fact there isn't any. Those so- 
called Friday morning pep sessions in Engle Hall were farces in fifteen min- 
utes. If any of you think that you were arousing the do-or-die spirit of 
our valiant cohorts, think again. Your own excitement wasn't aroused, 
therefore how could you impart to someone else something that you your- 
self don't possess? Think it over, will have more to say later. 

Heeding the plea of the above letter, we would like to add a little note 
concerning our first basketball game. On January 4, Moravian comes to 
Lebanon to tangle with the Blue and White. Last year L. V. C. defeated 
the Greyhounds 40-39 in a rather hectic tussle. With the game went Mo- 
ravian's thirteen game winning streak. This year they are determined 
to gain revenge for that setback, and word comes to us that the Flying 
Dutchmen are considered the traditional rivals of the Bethlehem aggrega- 
tion. 

Now, we know that the game is scheduled two days before vacation 
ends, but do you think it would be asking too much to request the students 
of L. V. to come back to the campus for that game in order that they 
might cheer the boys on to victory ?

PENNWAY 



Wl<f >J%nd ^Buckle 

The one-act play experiment which 
the W and B is now attempting to 
egt under way promises to provide 
good experiences for those who par- 
ticipate in the programs and good en- 
tertainment for those who witness 
them. The three plays chosen for the 
first evening in the cycle are excellent 
examples of different techniques used 
in one-act plays and the resulting 
effects of these varying types. The 
evening will open with "The Diaboli- 
cal Circle" directed by Frank Shenk. 
This is a costume comedy cleverly 
dealing with some of the eccentrici- 
ties of those early Pennsylvania in- 
habitants the Quakers. The second 
play is also a comedy, but of an en- 
tirely different nature; for "The 
Truth About Women" is a sophisticat- 
ed, modern, English comedy. This will 
be directed by Jeannette Kalbach, 
who will definitely have a problem 
on her hands with six modern young 
women and an eligible bachelor. The 
evening will close in an entirely dif- 
ferent vein with "The Monkey's Paw" 
directed by Marlin Espenshade. This 
is an atmosphere play, and just to 
increases aid atmosphere there will 
be musical effects directed by Cather- 
ine Coleman. 

Just to give a brief idea about each 
of these palys, here goes a short, short 
synopsis of each one. In "The Dia- 
bolical Circle" we have the old theme 
of a willful daughter who just re- 
fuses to marry the man of her fa- 
ther's choice. But the setting in a 
Quaker home puts a new slant on the 
old story. Especially do we sympa- 
thize with Betty when we learn that 
her father's choice is a stern Quaker, 
by name, Adonijah Wigglesworth ! 
But all is not lost, for the hero is one 
Charles Manning, a Cavalier gentle- 
man of the army. With the help of 
a very remarkable clock, these charac- 
ters get themselves into — and out of, 
eventually — a really comic situation. 

"The Truth About Women" is re- 
vealed in the London flat of a certain 
young man-about-town, Laurence 
Hayward. We find this young gentle- 
amn, just ready to pubilsh his mem- 
oirs, suddenly confronted with a bevy 
of women from his past who just 
want to make sure that — er! they are 
not to be included. But to tell more of 
this play would be to tell all. And 
especially don't let me mention what 
happens when he locks two "ex's" in 
a room together! 

About "The Monkey's Paw" almost 
nothing can be said beforehand with- 
out spoiling the effect. However, it is 
safe to say that the story centers 
about Mr. White's three wishes on an 
enchanted monkey's paw, which he got 
from the Major. The tradition is that 
this paw will grant any three wishes 
to its possessor, that the wishes will 
be granted by a seeming coincidence, 
and that the wisher will in every case 
repent his wishes.

A Christmas Reverie 



(Continued from Page 1) 



week). As my eyes accommodated 
themselves to the nearer distance I 
saw not two cards, but only one, as 
before; and there was that MERRiT 
CHRISTMAS again, monopolizing my 
fluctuating line of vision. MERRY 
CHRISTMAS — at last I was com- 
pelled to think in terms of its mean- 
ing; for had not the irresistible Edi- 
tor of the "La Vie" intrigued me ear- 
lier in the day to promise her to write 
an appropriate article for this issue 
of the campus paper? "Well," thougnt 
I, "why not write about the message 
on the card, MERRY CHRISTMAS: 
what could be more suitable?" Yes, 
MERRY CHRISTMAS — what did 
these familiar words really convey to 
me? 

Then my imagination went sudden- 
ly into reverse. Overcoming space and 
time, I journeyed far more rapidly 
than the ancient Magi to Bethlehem 
of Judea. I, too, had followed the 
wondrous star and found the Desire 
of All Nations. I stood at the begin- 
ning of our Christian Era: I was 
there when Light was born. 

I recalled how many religions have 
imitated Nature in her annual drama 
of the triumph of light over darkness. 
The winter solstice in the Julian cal- 
endar fell on December twenty-fifth; 
it was regarded as the nativity ox 
the sun. In Egypt at midnight the 
Mithraists would come forth from 
their shrines with the image of an 
infant, representing the new-born sun. 
Exhibiting the image, they would cry, 
"The Virgin has brought forth! The 
light is waxing!" Since the exact 
date of the birth of Jesus was not 
known, and with such a beautiful and 
significant parallel between the cen- 
tral feature of natural and revealed 
religion, it is not strange that the 
early Church solemnized the twenty- 
fifth of December as the birthday of 
the SUN OF RIGHTEOUSNESS. 

"So doth the greater glory dim the 
less: 

A substitute shines brightly as a 
king, 

Until a king be by ; and then his state 
Empties itself, as doth an inland 
brook 

Into the main of waters." 

The vital and surpassing meaning 
of Christmas was at least gripped by 
my inquiring mind: an IDEA was 
born in Bethlehem — an IDEA whose 
time had come. In the City of David 
the divine IDEA had become human- 
ized, and in Jesus Truth and Love 
joined their powerful forces to com- 
bat the darkness that had covered the 
earth like a funeral pall. The historv 
of Christianity is the history of the 
gradual triumph of light over dark- 
ness, notwithstanding those deplorable 
periods when spiritual blackouts tem- 
porarily concealed the Light of the 
World. Let us return to our homes 
and loved ones and light our Christ- 
mas candles; for there is no blackout 
in America — we are not afraid of 
swift-winged death from the skies. 
Our candles symbolize our hope in God

and in his Christ, and our faith in 
the messianic mission of democratic 
America to a despairing humanity ill 
a war-torn world. The lights of Chris- 
tian civilization must be rekindled. 

"Rise happy morn, rise holy morn, 
Draw forth the cheerful day from 
night : 

Father touch the East, and light 
The light that shone when Hope was 
born." 

Again my tired eyes became focused 
on the attractive Christmas card with 
its familiar greeting. I plucked the 
golden letters from their field of blue, 
and I now give them lovingly to you. 
A MERRY CHRISTMAS to each and 
every one of my young student 
friends. In this recurring season of 
Christian festivity may we not very 
properly borrow the heart-warming 
words of Tiny Tim? "God Bless Us, 
Every One!"

Delphian Chooses 

Hotel For Dance 

Large Attendance 
Expected by Society 

After considering numerous hotels 
and country clubs where it would oe 
suitable to hold their anniversary din- 
ner-dance, Delphian Literary Society 
decided upon the Hotel Abraham Lin- 
coln in Reading, Penna. The menu 
was selected for the dinner, and or- 
chestras were considered, although no 
definite decision was reached concern- 
ing the latter. Miss Rutherford, the 
anniversary president, reports that 
plans for invitations, programs, and 
favors are progressing nicely, and she 
is hoping for a dance as successful 
as that of last year. The enthusiasm 
of the girls and of a number of alum- 
nae gives promise of a large attend- 
ance and the success of the dinner- 
dance as well.

Ralph Shay Scores Hit 
As "Poor Richard" 



(Continued from Page l) 

which Franklin spit out the 
"bribery" showed that Ralph Sh" 



Word 



is going to be one of our best 



actor s 



from this point. If he had spoken 
other word, that would have branded 
him as outstanding. 

And now for a few comments on the 
acting. We can't help but rave on and 
on about Ralph Shay as Franklin 
Throughout the entire play he upheld 
his part, never letting down an i n . 
stant. He had more lines than anyone 
else in the play, but he did not forget 
a single one of them. We would like 
to have a picture of him kicking the 
stool with his sore foot, which inci- 
dentally was meant to be that way. 

Then we would like to say a word 
or so about Jack Dobbs. We predicted 
tnat ne would be a great success, and 
it seems that we were right. His ac- 
cent was the best that has been heard 
around here since the days of Bill 
Clark. It is a far cry from the Penn- 
sylvania German to the Pennsylvania 
englishman, but Jack seems to have 
gotten around the difficulty. Not only 
was he using an accent, he also man- 
aged to get tne right amount of dram- 
atic inflection into his lines. 

Martha Davies, of course, took the 
laurels for the woman in the play. 
Her enunciation was perfect, and she 
was very vivacious. Her boyish mas- 
querading, while it didn't fool us be- 
cause we had our programs in front 
of us, might well have fooled the 
gentlemen of France long ago. We 
really can't take each of the individual 
characters, and tell you about them, 
but we are going to say that everyone 
of them was excellent. 

The stage, which was constructed 
by Joe Carr and his committee with 
the advice of student director, Betty 
Foster, was really very well done. 
While most of the credit belongs to 
the above mentioned, we should lik e 
to thank the many people who will- 
ingly denuded their rooms for the 
play. And so "Poor Richard" was a 
howling success!
